The Catch

Let's give Obama the benefit of the doubt for a moment. Let's say he really can give us all a break on our taxes.

OK, now he's going after global warming and he taxes coal out of the market. Who is that going to hurt? Well, the coal miners of West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania...and all the industries built around them.

But it won't stop there. If you get your electricity from coal-fired plants YOU will pay more. In fact, even if you don't alternate fuels will suddenly become more valuable since coal is gone.

Now, those living on the edge will need help with their utility bills, right? One way or another, through charity programs at the electric company or government checks to the poor, YOU will help these people out.

And he doesn't have to tax you to get more of your money. If you've ever lived in Illinois you know what I mean. Fees aren't taxes. Tolls aren't taxes. Push the burden somewhere else and you don't have to raise taxes.
