    Actually I'm correct. If you are talking about a group policy your employer is subsidizing it, ask people paying for individual policies if they like the increases.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    That would be correct, were I not an advocate of progressive taxation. You seem to have gotten this whole idea that I(a socialist) want to redistribute wealth upwards, and it's just not the case. This money would go directly to the implementation of a renewables infrastructure, not to anybody's pockets. And further, using progressive taxation, only those who can afford to bear the financial burden would do so.

    Most economical situation? Like running the world oil supplies dry, while making you bear the burden of their reckless behavior?

    LOL!!! Such hyperbole!

    Don't worry, long before the world's oil supplies run dry the price of oil will rise enough to make your precious alternative energy sources more economical. That's the way the market works.

    And GCC is of no concern to you, hunh?

    Keep in mind that companies will continue to drill for fuels despite the environmental and public health risks/damages. That's also how the market works.

    What does GCC have to do with our use of our own domestic oil?

    I think our domestic oil companies are smart enough to deal with environmental and public health risks/damages...North Dakota isn't having any such problems, after all.

    Sustained use of fossil fuels leads to GCC...

    Tell that to Exon, British Petroleum, or Royal Shell.

    Re: Idea to control gas prices and help conversion to electric cars.

    fuel rationing and price controls eh?

    how about... No.

    there is no emergency condition in this country that would warrant a rationing and price control system to be put in place.

    I understand that a few commie environazis feel that everyone not having an electric car is an emergency, but meh, those folks are extremists nutbags and shouldn't be paid any mind.
