    I consider this bill to be the one show stopper of 2009. Mr Waxman did America such a diservice when he introduced this bill.

    It’s a Trojan Horse that allows the Government to write themselves in on the gains of organizations in America. The operators of these have opted to shut down all commerce until they see what nonsense will come out of this bill.

    The House passing this bill, sent a message to all of those in charge, that the Governemt was/is more corrupt than even they were prepared to believe.

    If you wnat to see jobs return anytime soon, this bill needs to be killed immediately…

    But that means the administration would have to admit, they are money grabbing crooks, who got caught with thier hands in the cookie jar.

  • arzuagm 10/03/2009 6:36am

    this is nonsense. maybe this bill should just include California since it is the biggest offender of pollution. you go there and, your eyes burn from the time you get off the plane.

    It’s time for this Bill to Pass! Enough sitting on the backburner! I won’t vote for any congressman who doesn’t vote for this bill!

  • Hammurabi 10/06/2009 7:15pm

    First of all the goal of this act is to restore and preserve. To use global warming as a fear tactic is non-sense. We cannot change the climate. The act creates a problem then sells you the fix. Anyone heard of “H1N1”? Everyone is not your friend the people behind this have qualities of good salesmen.

  • mnvikefan 10/07/2009 11:34am

    I’m not afraid of change or improving the environment. What scares me about this bill his the absolutely enormous tax burden put on the people of this country through the huge bureaucracy it creates

  • KeithMessina 10/13/2009 11:10am

    While decreasing pollution and becoming more energy efficient is a goal that we would like to work to. At a time when our economy is hurting, we need to create bills that can also help the people who are losing their jobs and feeling the burdens of trying to support their family. This bill will impose excess costs that the people and businesses of this country just can’t handle right now. Help me to create a better vision for this country by lending me your support as I run for US Congress against Barney Frank in Massachusetts.

    What MOST people do not understand is that this bill WILL DESTROY OUR NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY! This is not about saving the planet! It is about GLOBAL GOVERNANCE! All we are seeing is the smoke screen! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlTagSZPm7o WE MUST STOP THIS OR OUR CONSTITUTION WILL NOT BE WORTH THE PAPER IT IS WRITTEN ON!!!!!!!! It all has to do with AGENGA 21. Look it up. It has been on the UN website for years. Our government leaders (the elitest, eugenisists) WANT a GLOBAL GOVERNANCE. A NEW WORLD ORDER!

  • kgotjesus2001 10/18/2009 7:04am

    Agenda 21

  • kgotjesus2001 10/18/2009 7:06am

    Agenda 21 is about population control. It has nothing to do with saving the planet from climate change!

    This bill will change America indefinitely. I am urging congress to not even consider this bill. This will cost America jobs-plain and simple! We have been taxed enough. Why dont you pass a bill to specify exacatly where our money is going to the penny.

  • ssherices 10/23/2009 3:04pm

    Please stop this bill from passing! It is the death of America!

    Our country and our democracy are both already dead. Its up to us to stop “nail in the coffin” bills like this so WE AS A PEOPLE can bounce back.

  • Doingtherightthing 10/25/2009 7:47am

    I’m all for change that saves tax dollars. There are ways to fully fund clean air, like drilling oil in America and using the money from our own wells to create new jobs and new green plants. Without raising taxes on already over charged utility bills. It’s very simple really, you people are so blind to what’s going on, it’s not just about clean air, thats just a front. It’s about control for the high rollers and super rich, just one more thing to make them more powerful and controlling over you. Wake up America you make me hurt. Please tell me why they don’t use our own oil to fully fund these steps and create jobs for Americans, for the love of god this greed has got to stop ,and if it takes civil war then so be it, enough is enough.

  • bmwtriton 10/26/2009 7:02pm

    Almost all of the institutions trading permits are owned by Al Gore or Goldman Sachs. This Cap and Trade system is nothing more than government-sanctioned FRAUD. This system is starting to look more and more like a criminal enterprise than a federal program. The biggest proponent of this program was Enron. I wonder why. This bill seems perfect ways for the Mafia, money-laundererers, and terrorist financiers to scam the system and gain easy funding for their nefarious activities. Anyone who administers this program, as well as anyone in Congress who votes for this fraud, should it become law, should be investigated and maybe prosecuted for fraud. These officials could keep Bernie Madoff company.

    Forcing people to change is very hard to do just wait until all the oil is gone. Then we will have to change. And then the government can make some jobs for air purification. LOL jk

  • Patch23 10/29/2009 6:04pm

    I am sure that someone has mentioned this but do people realize that this bill includes every stationary carbon producing enity. If I am reading the bill right in section 700 in explains that every enity that produces 25,000 tons of CO2 are subject to this bill. Every house, resturant, store, school, hospital, manufacturing plant, everything is subject to the tax increases and credits that you need to buy. I want someone in Washington or even on the street to explain to me how this bill is going to bring this county forward.

  • lolmao500 11/03/2009 6:05pm

    I’ve heard mid November or around the 11th of November.
    None bills in Congress are meant to accomplish what they say they are going to accomplish. There are always ulterior motives and this on is extremely dangerous to the United States of America.


  • jen_georgia 11/09/2009 1:22pm

    listen to the scientists? You’re so right. They should listen to the scientists, since the vast majority of the scientific community based in every developed country concludes that “the warming of the climate is unequivocal” and that “the global warming observed over the last 50 years is primarily due to human-induced emissions of heat-trapping gases.” According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminstration, we’ve just left the hottest decade in the instrumental record.

  • DianaAmerican 11/11/2009 11:18am

    “Global Warming”, oops, now called “Climate Change” is not true! Think about it they had to change the name, simply because the weather was no longer supporting their “LIES”. The EPA is controlled by the United Nations, which is totally Un-Constitutional! Real Science Experts, “Not” associated with the United Nations state this is Not True! It was funny to them many years ago when they set the stage for global warming and they have been lying ever since. They are giving away our Freedom for a One World Government and they will control us with energy and food shortages. It is “Time” to Stop trhem Now!

  • DianaAmerican 11/11/2009 11:30am

    Americans had better wake up SOON! Fight now for Drill Here Drill Now! “Fight for the farmers to have water for crops or we will have no food”. "Fight for our FREEDOM, or it will be gone! Do you really want a Government to control the Energy you use, the Food you eat, the water you drink, the Healthcare you can have, how much money you can earn, the banks were you put your money, the company you work for, the kind of vehicle you drive or don’t drive, where you can live, where you can go?? If this is how you want it, then go live in a Communist Country, they have it ALL!

    right, because our capitalist democracy seems to be working great. Oh wait…we’re in the worst recession in 70 years, we have one of the highest unemployment rates of any developed country, and we have one of the largest disparities between rich and poor of any developed country. but at least we have freedom…oh wait, the Patriot Act signed into law by the Bush administration gives the federal government express permission to snoop on your phone lines, email, and internet activity.

    Go figure that Bush had to be brought into it. I hate the guy too, but now you’re just pointing fingers. If you look at what has been accomplished, Obama is no better. Dems or Reps – they are all the same making the fat pockets fatter.

  • Comm_reply
    4seasonslc 01/18/2010 3:49am

    And now the Dems are doing the same thing as the Reps did – making themselves more powerful and stripping the rest of us of all of our rights. Where is the PUBLIC representation for this taxation? Nowhere. Where is this bill coming from? Our SUPPOSED rep’s in the House and Senate who could give a rats behind what we say or think. I agree with you Bush sucked, but so does every politician that makes ANY decision against their constituents. That meaning damn near every one of them.

    One of the biggest causes of our recession, unemployment rates, and income disparity is government restriction of the economy and the individual’s property rights! If you want to point fingers, don’t point them at Bush. By the time he came to office, the system of government intervention in the market was so firmly entrenched that removing it would take a revolution! He did what he could, lowering taxes, reinvigorating the economy, encouraging businesses. If you want to point the finger for our economic woes, let’s look at the cherished FDR and LBJ duo of liberalism. What a mess! They have wreaked havoc! All we can do is attempt to give the American citizen back some of their rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

    After spending binge, White House says it will focus on deficits.
    Democratic lobbyist Steve Elmendorf says the White House focus on deficit reduction could easily kill the cap-and-trade effort. “I think this means cap-and-trade has to go to the backburner,” he said.
