Let me sort of describe my overall policy.
What I've said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else's out there.
I was the first to call for a 100% auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter.
That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year.
So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted.—Senator Barack Obama (see video)
What two things does Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Colorado have in common? Sen. Barack Obama promises to bankrupt their coal industries and they are all leaning toward voting for him.
According to RealClearPolitics.com Virginia polls for Obama, Ohio polls for Obama, Pennsylvania polls for Obama, Colorado polls for Obama and Indiana is the only coal producing sensible job saving state in the bunch voting for Sen. McCain who promise to protect their jobs!
Maybe Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Colorado is satisfied to wait for all those good clean green jobs that the Obama administration is going to produce!
But I wouldn't count on it because first it’s not the government’s job to produce jobs and second Sen. Obama has not ever actually did anything to prove that he has the experience to do such a thing.
Last the Democrat Party is the cause of the world-wide financial meltdown so who’s going to trust them with the U.S. economy?
Only the radical left-wing partisans of the Democrat Party that’s who!
