Turns His Back On Coalfields
Chooses Washington Friends Over Loyal Mine Workers
Never To Be Trusted
Environmentalist Idiocy Trumps Southwest Virginia Jobs
Electric Bills To Skyrocket
Region's Unemployment To Worsen
The following was made possible by Congressman Rick Boucher's treacherous actions:
Chairmen Waxman and Markey Introduce “The American Clean Energy and Security Act”That's all a lie, of course. Millions of new clean energy jobs? Energy independence? Save hundreds of billions in energy costs? Those are the most deceitful words ever written. In fact, this legislation will have the opposite effect.
From the House Energy & Commerce Committee
Chairman Henry A. Waxman and Subcommittee Chairman Edward J. Markey introduced "H.R. 2454, The American Clean Energy and Security Act." The Energy and Commerce Committee will begin markup of the bill on Monday, May 18, 2009, at 1:00 p.m., and will complete consideration before the Memorial Day recess.
"The legislation will create millions of new clean energy jobs, save consumers hundreds of billions of dollars in energy costs, promote America's energy independence and security, and cut global warming pollution," said Chairman Waxman. "In support of these goals, this legislation ensures that consumers and industries in all regions of the country are protected. I look forward to working with all members of the Committee to approve this legislation to make America the world leader in new clean energy and energy efficiency technologies." [link]
You're laboring under the weight of a monthly utility bill that is more than you can bear? Expect it to double.
New jobs? They'll number in the thousands. While job losses will reach into the millions.
Energy independence? How? Oil? No? Gas? No? Nuclear? No?
Windmills? Solar? Are you serious?
Again, this was all made possible by our congressman, Rick Boucher, when he caved to the environmental extremists in his party. Entirely.
Despite his weasel words, this bill will wreak destruction on Southwest Virginia the likes of which we've never seen before. Your taxes too high? Bend over, sweetheart.
I'm so mad I could spit.
