Newt on the Obama Energy Tax

From Newt Gingrich’s American Solutions 527:

Cap and trade amounts to an enormous energy tax on all Americans.
That is the conclusion of the Obama Administration’s own Department of Treasury according to a previously unreleased memorandum.  Treasury states that the administration’s energy tax proposal would cost as much as $200 billion, or $1,761 per household per year.
This is equivalent to raising personal income taxes by 15%, and is equal to the costs of all existing environmental regulations. So much for the promise of not raising taxes on the middle class.
This is a lot more than the flawed talking points parroted by energy tax supporters that it will cost “less than a postage stamp per day,” unless the Post Office plans to jack its rates from 44 cents per stamp to more than $4 per stamp.
Be sure to sign the Stop the Energy Tax petition today to stand up against this massive new energy tax.

So the final images of The Mule may be the last we see of him at the movies. If so, what an exit: understated perfection, with a playful hint of subverting his screen image. The Mule is ... Read More
