Those progressives who want to save the planet by decreasing carbon emissions in the atmosphere will do anything, tell you any lie in order to advance their agenda. They will admit to a temporary increase in what you must pay for your electricity and gasoline, but claim that will be temporary and in the long run prices will decrease and we will reap the benefits of a green economy. Looking back in time the same progressives told us that when they instituted the Federal Income Tax that it would be only a temporary measure from which we would all benefit. The history of taxes in this country is that when a tax is passed it is seldom if ever removed. In short TAXES ARE NEVER TEMPORARY and once passed are here to stay.
The promises of those who support Cap and Tax are just that, promises! And the road of the American Progressive Movement is littered with one broken promise after another. They just can't help themselves and they will always find suckers who will buy their "pie in the sky" schemes, that will in the end only lead to greater control over our lives. After all, collective control over individualism is really their ultimate goal!
