#4840: Who the hell has the balls to be surprised by this?

Barack Hussein campaigned on this shit. He promised us that "the cost of electricity will necessarily skyrocket."

How can anyone claim to be surprised when he told us he was going to do this?
On Sunday, we learned that Obama is imposing a nationwide 32 percent carbon dioxide emission reduction from 2005 levels by the year 2030. When it was first proposed last year, Obama’s plan called for a 30 percent reduction, but the final version is even more dramatic. The Obama administration admits that this is going to cost the U.S. economy billions of dollars a year and that electricity rates for many Americans are going to rise substantially. And what Obama is not telling us is that this plan is going to kill what is left of our coal industry and will destroy countless numbers of American jobs. The Republicans in Congress hate this plan, state governments across the country hate this plan, and thousands of business owners hate this plan. But since Barack Obama has decided that this is a good idea, he is imposing it on all of us anyway.
Of course reducing our carbon emissions by 30% from 2005 levels is going to be disastrous for the economy. And of course Barack Hussein doesn't give a rat's ass about that.

After all, this isn't going to hurt the aristocrats in D.C. one tiny little bit. They're all rich enough that paying $0.20 per kilowatt-hour isn't going to cause them any hardship. Their thermostats will be set to 70 year round.

Meanwhile, everyone else will be facing hard choices, like whether to heat the house to 60 or to have food that month. Shit. Meanwhile EPA is saying this will save us money. What color is the sky in their fucking world? What drugs are required to see it?

I'd like to believe that a Republican President would reverse this horseshit, but I have absolutely no confidence whatsoever that would be the case.
