As part of the broad plan to increase the cost of energy in this country (why? I don't know) the current administration wanted to implement a "cap and trade" which is really "cap and tax" on CO2 emissions.
Since "cap and tax" isn't a viable solution for anything, it seems that the administration is using using the EPA to tighten down the screws on the "regulations" (when a regulatory agency re-interprets the rules to give themselves more power) to increase the cost of electricity.
Remember kids, we didn't get the explosive growth of government until the Dems were able to stack the deck of the Supreme Court to strike down the "non-delegation of powers" doctrine in the 1930s. Sure wish we could get some lawmakers with enough spine to put non-delegation back on the books. That would keep the congresscritters arguing more about things that impact our lives instead of just looking to make bad legislation that screws us over and giving an unelected body power to interpret that garbage as they see fit.
