"Carbon Cap-And-Trade" a double tax on consumers

Tulsa Today reported An unnamed industry group and Chicago market-trader friends of President Obama are reportedly encouraging Congress to impose a “carbon cap-and-tax-and-tax” plan on its own customers, a plan that would dramatically raise energy prices in the midst of an economic recession, the Congress of Racial Equality charged in a national speech.
And all because of the fake "Global Warming" (when the globe has experienced level or lowering temperatures for the past 10 years).
“Our sources on Capitol Hill tell me that a small handful of energy industry insiders
Who want to profiteer off of the suffering of Americans.
are working with a small handful in Congress to push policies that are extraordinarily anti-consumer and anti-affordable energy,” said Niger Innis, National Spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality, in a speech to the annual meeting of the Conservative Political Action Committee recently.

“This group is reportedly trying to cut a backroom deal with Democratic leaders to force on consumers not only a carbon cap-and-tax scheme,
but a carbon tax on top of that,” Innis said. “Now, let me repeat this so you all understand: this industry association is asking Democratic leaders to impost a ‘carbon cap-and-tax-and-tax’ on its own customers.”
And it may do it, so that it can get control of more of our economy.
"This is an outrage on so many levels it makes your head spin,” Innis said. “This comes from an industry sector that has a reputation for providing some of the lowest cost power in America. This comes at a time when this group’s customers can barely afford their current utility bills.”

“Proposals like this threaten to light the fires of a consumer revolt aimed at industry – instead of a revolt that should be aimed at those extremists who want to see energy prices go up,”
And particularly at Congress that might let them do it.
Innis warned.
