Remember before the 2008 election, when Barack Hussein Obama said this?
“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK. That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen.”
“Under my plan … electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”
People must have thought he didn’t mean it. But he did, and he is delivering on his threats with the help of the unaccountable Environmental Protection Agency — which has been granted authority over every aspect of our existence by the wildly irresponsible Supreme Court. From the Institute on Energy Research:
EPA modeling and power-plant operator announcements show that EPA regulations will close at least 28 gigawatts (GW) of American generating capacity, the equivalent of closing every power plant in the state of North Carolina or Indiana. Also, 28 GW is 8.9 percent of our total coal generating capacity.
This will mean Third World-style rolling blackouts and skyrocketing energy prices. Forcing up energy prices correspondingly forces down our standard of living by driving up the price of literally everything, and by throwing people out of work as the economy is made to contract.
Those who think Obama is not destroying the country on purpose, but is merely a bumbling idiot, are invited to explain why he told his supporters in advance that he would do this to us.
Voting for him once despite his long list of associates who wish this country harm was stupid. Voting for him twice would be treason.
