    3.2% for the second quintile,
    2.4% for the middle quintile,
    2.0% for the fourth quintile, and
    1.4% for the highest quintile.

    The economic impact is calculable. The environmental impact is not.
    you think that is bad, you should do a breakdown of "sin tax"

    The biggest tax increase in the world to solve a problem that may or may not be solvable and that may or may not be happening. It is completely undefensible and rash! This is what is happening. Links to the data/proof can be found at this web site.

    Temperatures are in decline
    Polar ice extent is near normal
    The oceans are cooling
    There are fewer violent storms
    Solar activity is changing

    Besides, trees love CO2.

    For all you guys who bought houses which were built before "Green" certification, good luck when you go to sell, because you're in for a nice little surprise.

    And if even if you built a house recently that's up to "Green" standards (as I did), well, the whim of Washington bureaucrats being what they are, you may well be in for that surprise as well . . .

    This past Friday, the House of Representitives voted in favor of the controversial bill called "Cap and Trade." Eight Republicans voted for it--enough to get it through.

    Neal Boortz calls it "The greatest tax increase in American history." It will cost trillions of dollars.

    How do you like it? Vote.
    I am sure others have pointed this out, Anything that cost companies more money cost us more money because those companies just as they do with everything else pass those cost to the consumer. So Boortz is right it is a tax increase that most Americans will pay.

    These cap and trade morons are like the twits who think somehow fines were hurting big tobacco, when in reality big tobacco around that time owned Kraft and other food and beverage brands.So it wasn't big tobacco who was paying the fines it was the person buying the cheese,milk,cereal, and other foods and beverages.Companies pass the cost of doing business onto the consumer.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
