I'm really sorry to hear you are so allergic to CARBON DIOXIDE, which is what the new EPA rule is about.

Probably with the 'skyrocketing' costs of electricity that Obama has envisioned in your future, you'll have to keep the windows open and the air conditioning off since you might not be able to afford it. Millions won't. So you'll have to put up with the pollen and other things that blow on the wind all the time, instead of using your house air filter to filter them out.

It's really nothing less than Obama's war on America's ability to compete and create jobs. High price energy is killing Europe and it's ability to compete. They talk of 'energy poverty' in Britain...rates there and in Germany are 3 times the US average.

But'll breathe easier knowing that Obama's flawed plan to put 2 million more workers out of work isn't going to do a dang thing. Those folks in WV and KY will sit around at home burning their old wood stoves, spewing 10 times the pollutants while they sit around and moan that they no longer have jobs. And you'll get to pay more taxes to give them food stamps and other welfare, instead of them being productive citizens.
