Please take the time to read the CBO's Analysis of Cap-and-Trade. It's at http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/105xx/doc10573/09-17-Greenhouse-Gas.pdf It's a compelling read. On page 26, you will note a table of "Average Gain or Loss in Household Purchasing Power by Cap-and-Trade. The table is grouped by income quintiles. Here's the data: Net Gain or loss as a % of Income Lowest Quintile +0.7 Second Quintile -0.4 Middle Quintile -0.6 Fourth Quintile -0.5 Highest Quintile -0.1 So, the poorest gain (through tax incentives/rebates), the Richest loose just a touch (0.1%) and, well lookie here: The "Middle Class" of 2nd to 4th Quintiles lose 0.4 to 0.6%. So, according to the Non-Partisan CBO, the new Cap and Trade does hurt the middle class the most. So much for "working for the Middle class." Looks like he is working for the very poor and the Rich. Fuck the Middle class. Politics as usual. The CBO's report on the Health Care Bill should be out this week. I don't need to read all 1K pages to see who is getting screwed, just read the CBO report when it comes out. You don't need Fox News, MSNBC, etc. Go to the source, and read it in black and white, no spin, nothing to hide, nothing to gain. A non-partisan source.
