Wait, There's A Price Tag?

IBD/TIPP Poll: Cap-And-Trade A No-Go Once Costs Are Factored In
By nearly 3-to-1, Americans oppose a cap-and-trade system that, if opponents are correct, could add $800 to $1,200 per household to energy prices.

I would add that $800 to $1200 is a VERY modest estimate. Naturally, self-declared liberals are the only group actually in favor once cost is factored in. Even Democrats as a group are 4 to 3 against.

David Frum has more on the Cap & Trade Racket.
Tens of billions of dollars, possibly hundreds of billions, will be shifted from American consumers of electricity to shareholders of favored utility companies in primarily blue states. Under the leadership of uber-liberal Henry Waxman, chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, Democrats are determined to make their plan so complicated that taxpayers will not notice the flocks of dollars migrating from the middle of the country to the coasts.

Read the whole thing. And consider the geographical concentration of liberalism....
