This is what the TM said in today’s Press Conference about Crap and Trade.
“At a time of great fiscal challenges, this legislation is paid for by the polluters who currently emit the dangerous carbon emissions that contaminate the water we drink and pollute the air we breathe.”
Yes, The iWon is so utterly ignorant of basic economics he thinks that “polluters” (i.e. the people who produce the energy we all use) will pay the crap and trade tax without passing the costs to consumers.
Beyond that, compare the above quote to what he told the San Francisco Comical in 2008:
“Under my plan of a cap and trade system electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Businesses would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that cost onto consumers.”
Is the Teleprompter Messiah lying or just stupid? How do you Obama-moonies reconcile the two contradictory statements from the Dear Leader?
