    In one of the spending bills or budgets or whatever (who can keep track any more) there are plans for the the Carbon Credit.

    this will in effect raise prices on gas and home and business electricity.

    That will affect everyone. Not just the above 250k crowd.
    It will affect even the one's who right now don't even pay taxes. Because they use gas and electricity.

    So when the administration says that 95% of americans will not see a tax increase, it is an outright lie. Everyone will get shafted.

    When policies go into place that put a burden on businesses and that cost has be be passed on, that is an "indirect tax"

    This whole "change" thing isn't much of a change so far and I hope there is change soon.

    There are dozens of hidden taxes already in effect. Such as mandated Ethanol usage, and subsidies for farming.

    Undoubtedly the Cap and Trade, Carbon Credit program will vastly increase the cost of electricity.
