OH:07 Austria Dishonest In Newsletter

Congressman Steve Austria using a typical RepubOILcan Faux News like tactic, used taxpayer funds to send out a newsletter dishonestly posting the following as his quote of the week:

"Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates will necessarily skyrocket." -President Barack Obama

Now here is the truth about this quote. This was taken from an interview from January 2008 that Candidate Obama gave to the San Fransisco Chronicle. It was taken completely out of context. The point he was making is that changing over our old polluting ways of producing electricity will cost money in the short term but as new technologies and sources of energy are developed the long term effect on the economy will be positive.

Here is the actual video in context not chopped up like Austria and the RepubOILcans have been doing.

What Austria and the RepubOILcans have yet to learn is Americans are not stupid and we are tired of being lied to. Our nations dependency on fossil fuels as used currently is a huge problem for not only the climate, the economy and national security. We will no longer accept the lies of Austria and his cronies who tell us to do nothing and the problems will magically go away with no cost.
