How to Bankrupt a Nation In One Easy Step
WASHINGTON — Dealing with global warming will be painful, says one of the most powerful Democrats in Congress. To back up his claim [Rep. John Dingell] is proposing a recipe many people won't like — a 50-cent gasoline tax, a carbon tax and scaling back tax breaks for some home owners.
Gee, what's not to like? My tax burden would go up dramatically, and I will become less able to provide for my family, so that this Communist ballbag, and sorry-assed excuse for an American, can finance his (and Hillary's) entire laundry list of taxpayer-funded, vote-buying entitlement schemes.

"This is going to cause pain," [Dingell] said...
Yes, but only to those Americans with real jobs. You know, the ones who actually work for a living, and are just looking to make a better life for themselves and their families with as little interference from Mother Government as possible.
Of course, the mere existence of such a dangerous and subversive mindset amongst the masses is the number one threat to Dingell's socialistic Utopian paradise, so it's only "fair" that they should feel a little pain.
Not in my name, you festering, senile piece of asscheese.
Now, my post title might be somewhat inaccurate and misleading. Technically speaking, "the nation" wouldn't be rendered penniless by this asshole's latest redistribution of wealth scheme - just the millions of hard-working people residing therein.
The government, it's "progressive" overlords, and their foreign-based financiers would all have more money than any country should have to spend in 100 years (though, they'd still manage to spend every last penny, and then some, by the end of each fiscal year).
But, hey, FREE EVERYTHING! Just show your forearm tattoo I.D. to the conductor on board the train and he'll see to it you get everything you need (as determined by the 3,620-member Need Determination Panel, one of the smaller subgroups working under the direct oversight of the Governmental Benevolence Committee).
Oh, and I see here that Citizen #478023303-64-B is planning on taking the kids to Six Flags in a couple weeks. I hope, for his sake, he remembered to fill out those forms in quadruplicate, and to submit with them a certified check for $480, to cover the application and processing fee for his request for variance, so that can operate a motor vehicle outside his government-approved "carbon radius".
He'd better get on it. These applications can take a while to process. He wouldn't want to disappoint "The Children"TM.
