Yes, Virginia, Cap and Trade Will Cost Every Taxpayer A Lot of Money

Didn't know you all earn $250k per year, did you? Now we know President Obama knew cap and trade would affect average Americans big time.

As Erick Erickson notes, President Obama knew this back in November, yet chose to propose the legislation anyway. And he knew it would bite far worse during an economic downturn. What do we call those who pursue radical goals despite the harsh results for citizens? Fanatics.

Many have been chastized for calling Teh One "radical," but the more we learn about his policies and ideas, it becomes inescapable to conclude that he truly is a radical, hellbent on achieving his goals regardless of the will of those who elected him. The President of All of Us is looking suspiciously like a guy who believes in the Divine Right of the POTUS these days.
