>>> Talking Points

1. I am disappointed that Rep. Waxman is rushing the 1,000-page cap-and-trade Carbon Tax through the Energy and Commerce Committee this week.

2. This bill deserves full deliberation and should not be rushed.

3. I oppose the cap-and-trade Carbon Tax. This is an outrageous power grab by the federal government that will greatly expand government control and increase my taxes.

4. Especially in these difficult economic times, Congress must not pass this tax on the American people!

I saw a news item that indicated oil companies were reducing exploration and recovery due to the Cap and Trade. No exploration, no new wells.

Power companies which are currently expending millions for clean-coal technology are going to be hit hard with this Carbon Tax, and electric rates are going to go up.
