    Candace Miller Takes a Stand on Cap & Trade

    You know around here there is sometimes a pretty severe lack of support for our elected folks who stray from the reservation too far, and somehow don't even recognize when they have done so.  It can be an ugly sight.

    Among some of them, Candace Miller has been the target of more than a few words on occasion within these pages because of political stands which fly in the face of what many of us see as "right" or at the very least "Republican" even when her primary opposition is far worse..  Of course sometimes.. we HAVE to do that.

    At the same time, it is highly appropriate to laud the efforts, or at the very least note the quite proper commentary Representative Miller has published on behalf of Michigan and its punished economy due to the great global warming hoax.

    Not being too silent on the global warming issue now coming to a head, From the Detroit news:

    If the House bill were passed, the National Association of Manufacturers projects 2.4 million net jobs would be lost. The federal government's Energy Information Administration projects 2.3 million net jobs would be lost.

    No wonder a job-killing plan like cap-and-trade has stalled in Congress.

    The EPA move apparently is designed to force congressional action. Sen. Dick Durbin, the second ranking Democrat in the Senate, chillingly said in response to the EPA announcement, "If we don't come up with a reasonable way to reduce CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions working with business and labor and interest groups, then we may face decisions by the EPA which are very tough on a lot of people."

    In other words: Either enact legislation that we know will destroy millions of jobs or the EPA will destroy even more.

    Further, representative Miller appears well aware of the leaked emails which show manipulation by the "preeminent climate scientists" to bolster their claims.  She appears to be now calling them out with the rest of the commentary as well.

    There are enough questions about the potentially flawed science on which these decisions are being based to suggest we should be very hesitant before leaping off the cliff. The inconvenient truth is whatever action we take, cap and trade or EPA regulation, will cost millions of jobs.

    Cheers! We have your back on this issue.  Do not waver, and don't let em stick Michigan any more than they already have.
