A preview of what an Obama administration might do to reduce American energy usage has been made into law in Pennsylvania. There, electric utilities are required to cut their customers' electricity consumption in the next several years or face big fines. There is no way this can be done without raising electricity prices - just what struggling families and businesses need.
This is part of the Democrats' overall strategy to reduce American wealth by strangling our energy supply. Why would they do this? Because they're believers in The Green Religion, into which many socialists have morphed.
These kinds of programs - and there are more and more lurking under the media radar - make a mockery of the left's ostentatious concern for the poor. Raising energy prices hurts the poor the most.
