Required Reading: "What was in the Waxman-Markey'Manager's Amendment'?"

June 30, 2009

BIG Obama Gov tentacles are reaching out and grabbing us by the throat.  Soon enough if the Obama admin has it’s way EVERY move you make will be regulated and controlled.

What was in the Waxman-Markey ‘Manager’s Amendment’? The Green Gestapo, for starters – Doug Ross


Yesterday, President Obama gushed over the Democrat Energy Tax bill that passed the House and glossed over the economic impact of the legislation: “Don’t believe the misinformation out there that suggests there is somehow a contradiction between investing in clean energy and economic growth… It’s just not true. …We cannot be afraid of the future… And we must not be prisoners of the past… [the bill was] written carefully to address the concerns that many have expressed in the past.”

He is a bald-faced liar.


The climate bill’s passage was facilitated by a wild orgy that some called “an unrestrained exercise of raw political power, arm-twisting and intimidation.”

These tactics were necessary because if the American public had time to read and digest the bill, they would have marched on Washington with torches and pitchforks.

Consider some of the insane, Constitution-eradicating “features” of just the Waxman-Markey Energy Tax Manager’s Amendment, gleefully applauded by Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama upon its razor-thin passage Friday.

A few examples

• It creates new real estate appraisal processes, new training mandates for appraisers and, through an “Appraisal Subcommittee”, describes new standards for all real estate valuations based upon green considerations.

• It creates and regulates every building code in the country and will purposefully overrule any “city, county, parish, city and county authority, or city and parish authority having local authority to enforce building codes and regulations and to collect fees for building permits.”

• It affects every industry in America using “tonnage of production” measures; requiring each industry to calculate its “trade intensity” and “greenhouse gas intensity”. The administrators of the program will compare other countries emissions by industry (how those numbers are achieved aren’t spelled out) to U.S. industries in order to punish or reward companies on an industry basis.

• It will create — with the U.S. Customs Department — an “International Reserve Allowance Program” (IRAP) that will facilitate the trade, sale, purchase, exchange, transfer and banking of international reserve allowances. All material leaving and entering the country will engage with IRAP to ensure the equitable international balance of carbon leakage.
