I called and emailed my reps here is what one emailed me back:



Thank you for contacting me in opposition to H.R. 2454, the American Clean Energy and Security Act (ACES).  I appreciate hearing from you on this important matter.

America’s dependence on foreign oil is a threat to our national security and our economic viability.  With cleaner and cheaper ways to power our businesses, our homes, and our lives available today, the time to transition our economy to a more energy independent future is now.  I supported H.R. 2454 when it passed the House on June 26, 2009, by a vote of 219-212.  This legislation, the product of months of consensus building, will create millions of new clean energy jobs, enhance America’s energy independence, and protect the environment.  Major provisions in the legislation would:

• Protect consumers from increases in energy prices.  According to estimates from the Environmental Protection Agency, the reductions in carbon pollution required by the legislation will cost American families less than a postage stamp per day and the overall cost of implementing the bill will average $80 to $111 per household per year, which is less than $10 per month.

• Mandate new energy-saving standards for buildings and appliances and promote energy efficiency in industry which includes setting the federal government to a higher standard so we can lead by example.

• Require utilities to produce 20 percent of their power from renewable energy sources by 2020.

• Invest in new clean energy technologies and innovations to strengthen energy efficiency standards by 2025, including: (1) $90 billion for energy efficiency and renewable energy technology; (2) $60 billion for carbon capture and sequestration development; (3) $20 billion to develop electric and other advanced technology vehicles; and (4) $20 billion for energy efficiency and green technology based scientific research and development to ensure that the United States is a global leader in these fields.

• Reduce green house gas emissions in the U.S. by 17 percent by 2020 and over 80 percent by 2050, using the 2005 levels as a baseline.  Complementary measures in the legislation, such as investments in preventing tropical deforestation, will achieve significant additional reductions in green house gas emissions.

As a result of this balanced approach, H.R. 2454 has received broad support from both industry and environmentalists.  During Committee consideration, the legislation was supported by a coalition that included electric utilities, oil companies, car companies, chemical companies, major manufacturers, environmental organizations, and labor organizations.

Analysis of the bill by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) concludes that H.R. 2454 is a fiscally-responsible, deficit-neutral clean energy plan.  The CBO report states that the bill will raise $846 billion over the next decade in revenues from the new carbon market established by the bill, without adding to America’s federal budget deficit.  These revenues will be directed to assist consumers with the transition to a clean energy economy and for other public purposes, such as retrofitting federal buildings and schools to meet energy efficiency standards set in this bill.  At least 50 percent of the allowances will block the cost of compliance from falling on consumers -- with at least 35 percent going to protect against increases in electric, natural gas, home heating and propane bills; and another 15 percent going to assist low income consumers specifically.‪

We are now one step closer to delivering on the promise of a new clean energy economy that will make America less dependent on foreign oil, increase national security, crack down on polluters, and create millions of new jobs all across America.

Again, thank you for sharing your concern and please do not hesitate to contact me with any future issues.  You may also wish to access my website at www.louise.house.gov to see information on my legislative activities in Congress, a schedule of community events in Western New York, and special sections on constituent services.

Sincerely,

Louise Slaughter
Member of Congress

Louise Slaughter either has her head in the sand or she is CYA'ing for her previous anti-American acts.  I really believe these politicians are afraid of what happened during the French Revolution

I called and emailed my reps here is what one emailed me back:



Thank you for contacting me in opposition to H.R. 2454, the American Clean Energy and Security Act (ACES).  I appreciate hearing from you on this important matter.

America’s dependence on foreign oil is a threat to our national security and our economic viability.  With cleaner and cheaper ways to power our businesses, our homes, and our lives available today, the time to transition our economy to a more energy independent future is now.  I supported H.R. 2454 when it passed the House on June 26, 2009, by a vote of 219-212.  This legislation, the product of months of consensus building, will create millions of new clean energy jobs, enhance America’s energy independence, and protect the environment.  Major provisions in the legislation would:

• Protect consumers from increases in energy prices.  According to estimates from the Environmental Protection Agency, the reductions in carbon pollution required by the legislation will cost American families less than a postage stamp per day and the overall cost of implementing the bill will average $80 to $111 per household per year, which is less than $10 per month.

• Mandate new energy-saving standards for buildings and appliances and promote energy efficiency in industry which includes setting the federal government to a higher standard so we can lead by example.

• Require utilities to produce 20 percent of their power from renewable energy sources by 2020.

• Invest in new clean energy technologies and innovations to strengthen energy efficiency standards by 2025, including: (1) $90 billion for energy efficiency and renewable energy technology; (2) $60 billion for carbon capture and sequestration development; (3) $20 billion to develop electric and other advanced technology vehicles; and (4) $20 billion for energy efficiency and green technology based scientific research and development to ensure that the United States is a global leader in these fields.

• Reduce green house gas emissions in the U.S. by 17 percent by 2020 and over 80 percent by 2050, using the 2005 levels as a baseline.  Complementary measures in the legislation, such as investments in preventing tropical deforestation, will achieve significant additional reductions in green house gas emissions.

As a result of this balanced approach, H.R. 2454 has received broad support from both industry and environmentalists.  During Committee consideration, the legislation was supported by a coalition that included electric utilities, oil companies, car companies, chemical companies, major manufacturers, environmental organizations, and labor organizations.

Analysis of the bill by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) concludes that H.R. 2454 is a fiscally-responsible, deficit-neutral clean energy plan.  The CBO report states that the bill will raise $846 billion over the next decade in revenues from the new carbon market established by the bill, without adding to America’s federal budget deficit.  These revenues will be directed to assist consumers with the transition to a clean energy economy and for other public purposes, such as retrofitting federal buildings and schools to meet energy efficiency standards set in this bill.  At least 50 percent of the allowances will block the cost of compliance from falling on consumers -- with at least 35 percent going to protect against increases in electric, natural gas, home heating and propane bills; and another 15 percent going to assist low income consumers specifically.‪

We are now one step closer to delivering on the promise of a new clean energy economy that will make America less dependent on foreign oil, increase national security, crack down on polluters, and create millions of new jobs all across America.

Again, thank you for sharing your concern and please do not hesitate to contact me with any future issues.  You may also wish to access my website at www.louise.house.gov to see information on my legislative activities in Congress, a schedule of community events in Western New York, and special sections on constituent services.

Sincerely,

Louise Slaughter
Member of Congress


How sweet. They just have a nice little form letter to send out to all the 'concerned citizens'.

Today is the last day -- pls accomplish the above.  Then, we'll work on the Senators if it doesn't change and does indeed go to the Senate House

In 2000 and 2001, while Barack Obama served as a board member for a Chicago-based charitable foundation, he helped to fund a pioneering carbon trading exchange that is likely to fill a critical role in the controversial cap-and-trade carbon reduction scheme that President Obama is now trying to push rapidly through Congress.

During those two years, the Joyce Foundation gave nearly $1.1 million in two separate grants that were instrumental in developing and launching the privately-owned Chicago Climate Exchange, which now calls itself "North America's only cap and trade system for all six greenhouse gases, with global affiliates and projects worldwide."

“Obama Years Ago Helped Fund Carbon Program He Is Now Pushing Through Congress” is a FOXNews story by Ed Barnes. In short, “While on the board of a Chicago-based charity, Barack Obama helped fund a carbon trading exchange that will likely play a critical role in the cap-and-trade carbon reduction program he is now trying to push through Congress as president.”

H.R. 2454: American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 will result in a totalitarian centralization of the American economy in the administrative agencies of the federal government, especially the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This 1,300 page horror is a prime example of congressional modus operandi — no one in Congress actually had the opportunity to read the bill which was, incidentally, being amended as it was debated on the floor. As H.R. 2454 shows, this axiom still holds true: the more benign the title of a congressional bill, the more draconian its contents. After all, who could be against clean energy or security? The real goal of H.R. 2454 has nothing to do with either of these; it is a power grab, pure and simple.

While we have all heard much about the tax implications of H.R. 2454 and that every American family could see a $3,000 a year increase in their energy costs, H.R. 2454 does much more than that. H.R. 2454 is a fascistic fait accompli, giving the government expansive powers to regulate, subsidize, and tax more sectors of the economy. The bill authorizes more federal government control over the electrical grid, state and local building codes, lighting and appliances, industry, the financial markets, and, perhaps most ominously of all, the health care system. In addition, it includes wealth redistribution measures and would allow increases in foreign aid.

Part of the rhetoric surrounding H.R. 2454 is that it will help break America’s dependency on foreign oil by encouraging development of renewable energy sources. Most likely, the opposite will happen as oil companies “cope with U.S. carbon legislation by closing fuel plants, cutting capital spending and increasing imports.”

Ironically, cap and trade — the cornerstone of H.R. 2454 — does not protect the environment! Even Greenpeace opposed H.R. 2454, recognizing that it “chooses politics over science.” While I would argue that the science to which Greenpeace refers is dubious at best, there is no question that H.R. 2454 has put politics above all else.

how much is a fart going to cost me? $10?

F*** that.  Carbon DOES NOT heat the earth.  The big glowing fireball in the sky a.k.a. the Sun does that.



I love this post
