This would also make the U.S. a third world nation. Well why not, pretty much everyone else is!
The Heritage Foundation reports,
“This intrusive regulation will cost the American economy nearly $7 trillion dollars in lost GDP in just 20 years, and result in massive job losses. Heritage’s respected Center for Data Analysis estimates non-farm employment losses will exceed 800,000 in some years, and manufacturing jobs will plummet. Some industries would lose over half of their jobs. Government permits would be needed to expand small businesses and build homes, hospitals and schools. To add insult to injury, foreign competitors will not have to abide by these regulations, leaving American businesses at a disadvantage.”
America, this is a very real threat to your very real economy for a nebulous, unsubstantiated, and quite likely non-existent threat – global warming. You are already well down the road to socialism. Giving this degree of economic control to agencies of the government would pretty much cinch the deal. Will you give it all away so easily?
