As if things weren't already hard enough for the middle class as it was, now we get the luxury of a Cap & Trade tax thanks to President Barrack Obama's fight against Polluters On my check this week I will be taxed an extra 10% of my take home earnings... thats roughly $45 dollars LESS on my check than I will receive now. Almost $200 a month that I wont have because of Bullshit Global Warming and Carbon Witch Hunts. Thanks Obama.... so glad to hear you're still "for the working class".
