Cap and Trade, The Death of the US Economy

Written by Cantor

Share

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Office of House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) today launched a new video news release entitled, "Number One Priority." The video highlights Speaker Pelosi's top priority, "cap and trade" legislation that will impose a national energy tax of up to $3,100 on all Americans and slam small businesses with higher energy bills, causing the loss of millions of jobs.

In a year that has seen the loss of 2.9 million jobs in America, Republicans remain focused on creating jobs, cutting spending to reduce the deficit, and keeping taxes low.
