    "President Barack Obama will announce plans Tuesday for sweeping new climate change rules for the Environmental Protection Agency that he plans to execute by circumventing Congress, The New York Times reports.

    ...and Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia predicted "shortsighted" rules that will increase the cost of electricity.

    "Why do you want to penalize and beat the living daylights out of America and American taxpayers, and American ratepayers? It is just wrong, it is shortsighted and wrong, and I will fight it until the end," Manchin said."


    I go out of my way to lower my energy costs, and still they want to fuck me further. Meanwhile, skies over large areas of Asia are black with pollution, but apparantly our efforts here aren't enough.[​IMG]

    "circumventing Congress" - AGAIN?

    And again I assume congress will do nothing.

    Yet another argument for term limits and a nationwide grass roots organization to vote a clean sweep of congress. IF only we can educate these idiots who keep blindly voting for "MY team" and "MY congressman".

    It's just the left wanting to flog the American and European taxpayer some more.

    Make us repent and send much more money to the U.N. and underdeveloped oppressive countries.

    Make our economies pay for our crimes to the earth.

    Obama needs to be removed from office by what ever means necessary.
