Not content to rest on their laurels, the democrats smell tax payer blood and are going for broke.
Apparently we all make too much money, too many of us have nice insurance plans, and we haven’t been subjugated enough for the tastes of the Dems.
Sen. John “I believe In The Toothfairy” Kerry has issued a new decree to the slaves:
Twenty-two Democratic senators have signed a letter calling for climate legislation within the year, although some observers question if the White House will want another divisive vote as November midterm elections approach.
Senator John Kerry, the chief architect of climate legislation, said Monday that White House officials can now “pour their energy and attention” into the issue after Sunday’s down-to-the-wire vote on expanding health care coverage.
“In the wake of health care’s passage, we have a strong case to make that this can be the next breakthrough legislative fight,” the Massachusetts Democrat argued.
Of course, everything the government does “creates jobs”. Obviously the government knows how to spend your money better than you do; which ultimately means if the government takes ALL of your money, the economy will prosper under the tutelage of our all knowing wise masters in congress. The less money you have, the better off you will be.
“Climate legislation is the single best opportunity we have to create jobs, reduce pollution and stop sending billions overseas for foreign oil from countries that would do us harm,” Kerry said.
“If we sell those arguments we’ve got a winning issue on jobs, on security and on public health. This can happen.”
Never mind that global warming has been proven to be a total contrived farce a dozen times over.
The important thing here is that you are propagandized into believing only the government can create jobs and save you from yourself.
