Obama lies, but not always

Yesterday the House of Representatives passed Obama's Climate Change-Energy bill. It will soon be taken up by the Senate. If you pay attention you will hear a bunch of lies from democrats about how this will create jobs and save the planet. What you won't hear is what Obama himself said about this bill back during the presidential campaign. In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle he said, "Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket."

He also said that his plan would bankrupt the coal industry, from which around 50% of our electricity is generated. What he didn't say and what is true, is that virtually everything that costs you money now will cost you more if this bill is passed.
