+ + 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!
