The economy is struggling, but the Obama Administration still is moving forward with a plan that will only harm the economy more. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is planning to regulate greenhouse gas emissions, which is nothing more than a tax on carbon dioxide—the stuff we exhale. These regulations will increase the cost of 85 percent of our energy— raising the price of gasoline, electricity, natural gas, and home heating oil. The last thing we need is more expensive energy.
The Obama Administration and bureaucrats at EPA are planning to impose regulations that our elected representatives in Congress have considered for years, but have been unable to implement without permanently hurting our economy. Now EPA is trying to force Congresses’ hand.
