A History Lesson on Goldman Sachs – one of the main players in Cap and Trade Legislation
“The Commodity Futures Modernization Act.”
Goldman Sachs wrote them…
Clinton teed them up and Bush & Co. knocked them down the fairway.
Now Goldman owns our president too.
The bankrupting of America (and the world) on the behalf of a handful of New York investment bankers.
Kleptocracy – government of the thieves, by the thieves, for the thieves.
So- first they took your 401K (internet bubble), then they took your house (real estate bubble) and assaulted your 401K again, raised the interest rates on your charge cards to 20%+. For those of us still hanging on – here comes Cap and Trade. Another bill engineered by Goldman Sachs, with a little help from their friends. The article above will give you the details.

Matt Taibbi on how Goldman Sachs has engineered every major market manipulation since the Great Depression

President Obama’s energy “czar” Carol Browner hinted today that the EPA might implement a cap and trade plan for carbon dioxide emissions even if that type of plan fails in the Senate
Browner said in an interview today, “We also have the reality of EPA, under current law, moving forward…to start the traditional regulatory clock,” another less-than-disguised attempt to threaten Congress into passing some form of carbon criminalization bill such as the Waxman-Markey bill or the Senate version of the energy tax. This also comes in the wake of EPA’s decision to forego what it knows is best (legislation) by issuing rules for regulating carbon dioxide
Even more interesting is that the energy czar is actually encouraging well-connected groups and businesses to engage in lobbying. Browner said the credible threat of EPA regulating carbon would “obviously encourage the business community to raise their voices in Congress” in support of the energy tax.
In other words, the government is moving full speed ahead with a plan, regardless of whether our own elected leaders support it. And in the process, they’re hoping that businesses will spend millions of dollars in lobbying to support a devastating measure like the Boxer-Kerry energy tax.
