If coercion doesn't work, try bribery instead?

They want to put everyone on the dole, so no one can afford to vote them out.

The wave of the future. The question is how to keep climate protection from killing consumer income; this does it.

Hey, far out! Another money laundering scheme that will empower the lefties. Who would have ever guessed they would come up with something like this. GAG!

How about if we just leave the climate protection racket alone. If it's dangerous enough to kill consumer income this easily, it's bad policy.

"[Cap-and-dividend] would transfer wealth within the economy, whereas [cap-and-trade] would inject $1 trillion of wealth into the economy," said Book."
An average of $1,100 into the pockets of consumers? It's not so much the program, but who is handling the money exchange that bothers me. Just let me keep 1,100 a year in my own pocket, it doesn't have to leave home. Doesn't say if the IRS is going to look at this like interest received on bank deposits or capital gains to be 'taxed'. Sounds like another tax on a taxed item. Of course now since we have a Congress in this country that passes these laws, it would 'spin' that this is NOT taxation without representation. Yeah right.
