In the words of Mitt Romney,
Are we going to tax coal and natural gas in this country? John McCain says no. Barack Obama wants to add a tax to those sources of energy. John McCain will get us energy independent, bring down the cost of energy long- term in this country. It’s essential, America’s crying for it. Barack Obama, I think, is just wrong on this one.
I have to agree with Mitt on this one. Barack Obama’s energy policy is just wrong. Why would you tax coal and natural gas? It makes no sense. Lets tax all old “evil” sources of energy, ones that are bad for the environment. Lets force America over to new energy sources that don’t exist yet or aren’t cost effective such as solar, and cripple the economy in the process. That’s a really smart move. But we’re teaching the world a lesson. We’re teaching the world that we need to be green. Ridiculous. The only way out of this energy crisis, is to do it smart. Use the energy sources we have. Don’t cripple them. Fund research into new ways, and migrate over as new sources are developed. Positive reenforcement. Not negative reenforcement.
