You recall that massive new tax passed yesterday? The one where 8 Republicans stabbed their constituents in the heart and voted to pass it……(via Michelle Malkin)

You remember now don’t you?

Well, those who voted on it could not remember much seeing as how it DOESN’T EXIST:

Nobody could have read the bill the House passed last night because there is no bill. There apparently wasn’t time to pull together a finished product that accounted for the hundreds of pages of amendments because of Pelosi’s headlong rush to slam this lunacy through before anybody had a chance to learn what was actually in it. So there is no “it” that all the pages and pages of words can be found “in.” Democrats have passed a concept — not a bill.

The Washington Examiner:

Texas Republican Reps. Joe Barton and Louie Gohmert have just asked the chair whether there exists a complete, updated copy of the Waxman-Markey carbon-cap bill.

“If a bill for which there is no copy were to actually pass this body,” Barton asked, “could the bill without a copy be sent to the Senate for its consideration?”

Through a series of parliamentary inquiries, the Republicans learned that the 300-plus page managers’ amendment, added to the bill last night in the House Rules Committee, has not even been been integrated with the official copy of the 1,090-page bill at the House Clerk’s desk, let alone in any other location. The two documents are side-by-side at the desk as the clerk reads through the instructions in the 300 page document for altering the 1,090 page document.

But they cannot be simply combined, because the amendment contains 300 pages of items like this: “Page 15, beginning line 8, strike paragraph (11)…” How many members of Congress do you suppose have gone through it all to see how it changes the bill?

Wonderful….just how I imagined a Pelosi run Congress would operate.

So, it passed the House. This tax, a tax in which Obama promised he would never force upon his adorers seeing as how he promised nobody making under 250 grand a year would pay any new federal taxes.

The left says, its not a tax! It’s a fee you see. Because any business that wishes to emit carbon will have to pay the fee to operate.

That’s a tax folks. Anytime you HAVE to pay our government and they use that money to operate the government…that’s a tax. We all know whats going to happen once the business’s are forced to pay more to operate, that burden will be passed on to the consumer. So our prices will go up for all sorts of goods. Then our utility bills will rise, as Obama promised:

So, as the Tax Foundation study stated, we are going to be paying about 2% more annually. Check that link for a calculator to find out how much more your gonna be paying per year because of the bill…or I should say, the bill that doesn’t exist……yet.
