Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

An Obama promise kept: electricity rates will “necessarily skyrocket”

Back in 2008, he promised that if he were elected, he would definitely jack up our power bills to combat the nonexistent threat known as global “warming” (or “climate change” when it’s -12 degrees outside).

Did you think he was kidding, America?  If so, the joke’s on you:

Consumers could see their electricity bills jump an estimated 40 to 60 percent in the next few years.

The reason: Pending environmental regulations will make coal-fired generating plants, which produce about half the nation’s electricity, more expensive to operate. Many are expected to be shuttered.

The increases are expected to begin to appear in 2014, and policymakers already are scrambling to find cheap and reliable alternative power sources. If they are unsuccessful, consumers can expect further increases as more expensive forms of generation take on a greater share of the electricity load.

The story goes on to show that not only will people be forking money over to the power companies, but to city and county governments who will also be incurring costs that they aren’t going to be eating.

I can see the campaign slogan now:

“Higher gas and power prices. Higher unemployment. HIgher health care costs. Inflation. Insolvency. Obama-Biden 2012. You’re welcome.”
