Americans Face Jump In Electricity Bills Due To Proposed EPA Regulations

Though I am Canadian, most of the readers here on this site come from the United States. This information I am about to share is extremely important and directly affects you.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, known as the EPA, has proposed sweeping regulations that would require all the states to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from the electricity sector. They say it has to be reduced by an average 30% nationally. This costly plan is another step in the administration's policies, designed to eliminate low cost and reliable energy, and replacing it with expensive and less reliable sources. 
The U.S. manufacturing market will become less competitive because of the higher electricity costs. Families will have less disposable income due to having to spend more on heating and lighting their homes. Seniors and people on fixed incomes will be forced to dig further into their incomes and monthly budgets on utilities. The EPA's plan is leading Americans into a very uncertain future, that's for sure.

My eyes are wide open. Generally, what happens in the U.S. ends up happening here in Canada too. Our costs are already outrageous for energy. I don't know how many more households in Canada could take a hit like that and pay more too. It is definitely food for thought.

I urge you to contact your local member of congress. This needs to be stopped.

  1. Yes, food for thought. We (in California) are making modifications in personal water usage due to the drought in our parts.

    1. I'm all for trying to decrease consumption, but to make people pay more than it's worth or than they have is an issue.

  2. And the hits keep coming. I don't know the answers, but when a country eliminates the middle class, who foots the bills? Thanks for sharing, Freda.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
