Texas Resisting Obama Power Grab - Back-door Cap & Tax

Obama and the people in his administration do not understand the restrictions placed on the Executive Branch by the Constitution, and are attempting an end run around Congress to enact Cap & Tax. Texas is rebelling as will many other states. 35 states are challenging ObamaCare. This is the beginning of the process for the people to rein in the usurpation of powers by the Federal Government.

The progressives at the Federal level have been whittling away at our freedoms since Woodrow Wilson's time, and the "elite ruling class" will not roll over easily, so the recovery will not happen overnight. Texas and Arizona are at the forefront of the peoples' rebellion.

Sensing the political failure of the Left’s environmental whacko agenda of raising energy costs to cap emissions of a gas we all exhale and that plants need to thrive — carbon dioxide — President Barack Obama has instructed his Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to rewrite its Clean Air Act and give itself authority it doesn’t have.

Thankfully, one state is resisting: Texas.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality Chairman Bryan W. Shaw call the EPA’s actions an illegal power grab and in a letter to the EPA they wrote:

"In order to deter challenges to your plan for centralized control of industrial development through the issuance of permits for greenhouse gases, you have called upon each state to declare its allegiance to the Environmental Protection Agency’s recently enacted greenhouse gas regulations — regulations that are plainly contrary to U.S. laws… To encourage acquiescence with your unsupported findings you threaten to usurp state enforcement authority and to federalize the permitting program of any state that fails to pledge their fealty to the Environmental Protection Agency. On behalf of the State of Texas, we write to inform you that Texas has neither the authority nor the intention of interpreting, ignoring or amending its laws in order to compel the permitting of greenhouse gas emissions."
