Sen. John Kerry (D-MA), who along with Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) recently introduced the Senate version of the energy tax, let the cat out of the bag about what we have to do in order to meet the requirements of their devastating bill: prolong the recession.  Kerry said:

"Let me emphasize something very strongly as we begin this discussion. The United States has already this year alone achieved a 6 percent reduction in emissions simply because of the downturn in the economy, so we are effectively saying we need to go another 14 percent."

The co-author of the newest incarnation of the devastating energy tax has made it clear: The downturn in the economy is a good thing, and we need to make it even worse. In fact, by Senator Kerry’s logic, we would need to make the economy more than twice as bad as it currently is in order to meet the goal of Boxer-Kerry (or is it Kerry-Boxer?)
