Just Plug The Leak With Dollars!

The APA (American Power Act. I know scary name) deserves another look. It has been addressed many times recently (including here) but deserves to be put down once and for all.

National crises have been used before to power otherwise unpopular government legislation into law and it’s happening again. Barack Obama is using the fear for the environment that has awoken in American’s hearts since the BP oil spill to push new Cap and Trade legislation. Let me emphasize: This legislation will destroy the economy. Our economic situation is precarious at best and this new spending legislation would send it over the edge. It will raise fuel prices and only hurt the people.

We cannot allow ourselves to be manipulated by fear any longer.
