Passing Cap and Tax, the ObamaCare way

Dear friend,
 
You’re hearing it.  I’m hearing it.  But I don’t believe it for a minute.
 
“Senate sponsor of a climate and energy bill says supporters are still short of the 60 votes they need to advance the legislation. Independent Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut says about 50 senators support the bill while 30 others oppose it. That leaves 20 or so senators undecided.” – Associated Press, June 20, 2010
 
“The cap-and-trade bills in the House and Senate are dead. The concept of cap-and-trade is going to be replaced.” – Sen. Lindsey Graham, Feb. 27, 2010
 
Why don’t I believe it? 
 
Because I’ve heard it before.  And so have you.
 
“Lieberman’s comments confirm that Democrats in the Senate do not currently have enough votes to move forward the health care plan laid out on Monday by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).” – CBS News, Oct. 27, 2009
 
“The reason you’re not going to have a government run health care pass the Senate is because it would be devastating for this country” – Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) June 21, 2009
 
Congress won’t pass ObamaCare?  We all remember how that rock-solid “prediction” from Lieberman, Graham and the media worked out. 
 
Now they’re saying the exact same thing about Cap and Tax.
 
This is how liberals operate.  They preemptively declare defeat, and wait until you and I leave the battlefield before they launch their assault.
 
And they’re doing it again.  They insist Cap and Tax isn’t going to pass.
 
You know, the exact same thing they said about the “dead” ObamaCare bill.
 
The radical greens are already furiously at work cobbling together something that will at least get the proverbial camel’s nose under the tent.
 
Right now that looks like a Cap and Tax system that – for now —will only cover power plants. 
 
The big power companies are all for it. 
 
They know that it will send your utility bills skyrocketing, but they also know that massive price hikes will put their smaller competition out of business. 
 
They’re willing to take a massive hit if they know it will clear the playing field of competition.
 
That’s why I need to hear from you right now.

The media, radical greens and Senate leadership want you to think Cap and Tax is dead.  It’s exactly what they did to take the heat off wavering senators and congressmen and buy themselves time to craft a final ObamaCare bill.
 
And they’re doing it again.  As the furor over Cap and Tax dies down every time a senator steps in front of a TV camera to declare they don’t have the votes to pass Cap and Tax, behind the scenes they’re writing multiple versions of Cap and Tax and burning up the phone lines to come up with something – anything – that can pass into law and inject Cap and Tax into our economy, knowing they can keep going back and adding to it until they have total control of they economy.
 
There’s only one way to stop them – keep up the pressure, turn up the heat and kill any and all forms of Cap and Tax.
 
I need your help to do that.

WTP is working around the clock, adding names to our popular NoCapAndTax.com petition and churning out letters, faxes, postcards and phone calls in opposition.
 
We must step up our campaign.  The constant, conflicting, media reports that Cap and Tax is “dead” while radical greens are coming up with new versions of it every day is proof Cap and Tax is closer than ever to passing.
 
That’s how they passed ObamaCare.  And it’s how they plan to pass Cap and Tax.
 
Stop them today.

P.S.  It seems like every day there’s a new media report that Cap and Tax is dead and there aren’t the votes to pass it.
 
Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?  That’s EXACTLY what they said about ObamaCare – even right up to the final minutes when Congress voted to pass it!  Their plan was to lull you and I into believing we were going to win, at which point they’d launch their attack. 
 
It worked then, and they’re planning to make it work again and pass Cap and Tax. 
 
WTP isn’t fooled.  We’ve never stopped flooding Capitol Hill with NoCapAndTax.com petitions, phone calls, faxes and letters in opposition.  But I need your help to keep up the pressure and defeat their “sneak attack” plan.
