The United States House of Representatives passed the deceptively titled “American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009,” also known as the Waxman/Markey/Pelosi bill. This bill is now scheduled to go before the Senate. If this legislation becomes law, it will have a costly impact on you, the American People.
The legislation will:
- Cost Americans an estimated 77 ¢ per gallon more for gasoline at the pump. This means a 20 gallon fill-up will cost you an additional $15.40
1 gal ——– + $ .77
10 gal ——– + $7.70
20 gal ——– +$15.40
- Cost the average American family $1500 per year in additional energy costs.
- Weaken America’s ability to compete worldwide by increasing the costs of producing ALL goods in the United States.
- Reduce economic growth and recovery by destroying more than one million US jobs.
