Another bill by a Democrat that will make fees or taxes go up.   Another way to lower the standard of living in America.  What else is new?  This one will make it costlier to heat or cool your home to read a book, take a hot shower or bath.  All of this when the dollar is losing it’s value rapidly,inflation is increasing and Americans are  losing their homes or can’t find unemployment.

The following is from ScienceandPublicPolicy.org ,

“On  September 21, 2010, US Senator Bingaman (D-NM) introduced a bill1 that would create an insidious national “Renewable Electricity Standard” (RES). Bingaman now has 32 cosponsors but expects 60. The bill would result in higher monthly bills for millions of home owners and renters, farms, businesses, industries, hospitals, educational institutions, and any other organization that uses electricity. 

Despite the intense citizen displeasure with Congress, Bingaman’s RES bill shows that both Democrats and Republicans, while in Washington, are eager to favor special interests and their lobbyists while ignoring the adverse impact of their actions on the nation’s ordinary citizens, consumers and taxpayers. The bill belies Republican claims that they favor less federal government intrusion, control, and damage.”
