Paying your electricity bill is patriotic

Wow.  I'm gonna need those middle-class tax credits [1] that Senator Obama wants: they'll come in handy to pay my electricity bill.
You know, when I was asked earlier about the issue of coal, uh, you know — Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers.
Awesome.  Because expensive power driving costs through the roof is exactly what we need.

As a campaign slogan I'm not sure 'Vote Obama - he'll double your electric bill' is a winner but what do I know?
