and they’re continuing to screw Americans like no other time in our history.
“Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” Barack Insane Obomination 2008
Well, that’s ONE promise that Il Douche kept.
So how is that working out for America? The War on Coal, (coal generates 40% of our energy) is being waged successfully by the bureaucrats in the Constitutionally illegal EPA.
EXCERPT: “According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the energy price index has been higher than the overall Consumer Price Index since December 2010 — 46 straight months and counting. To say this is a historical anomaly is putting it mildly. Almost without exception, energy prices climbed more slowly than the overall CPI since 1957, the first year in the BLS’ monthly energy price data.
Even in the wake of the “energy crisis,” the energy index barely topped the CPI. And while the 2008 gasoline price spike pushed energy costs up, it lasted for only a short time. When Obama took office, the energy price index was 15% below the overall CPI.
Since then, gasoline prices have been stuck above $3 a gallon while electricity prices climb. In the first half of this year, they jumped 3.2% — the highest on record since 2009.
Why the big reversal? Despite Obama’s alleged “all of the above” energy policy, he’s declared virtual war on conventional energy sources.
Oil production on federal lands has dropped 6%, according to a Congressional Research Service report. Obama continues to block the Keystone XL Pipeline, and he’s planning new smog rules that will dramatically raise the cost of energy production.”
And you can bet your last buck that Valerie “The Rat” Jarrett is involved with this scandal as well.
