Brave Missouri Bakers Take On DC Cap & Traders
A local bakery chain in St. Louis County had it with liberal Congressman Russ Carnahan (D-MO) last Friday after the representative and other Missouri democrats SOLD OUT Missouri workers and small business owners by voting for the Waxman – Markey bill, otherwise known as cap-and-trade.
David McArthur, the owner of McArthur’s Bakery, sent a letter to Carnahan after the vote. He told Carnahan that the enormous costs that this bill will heap on small businesses will cause his chain of bakeries to close shop.
Later this week Russ Carnahan’s office responded to McArthur’s Bakery.
The Washington Times reported:
“I think there’s been confusion about the issue generally, and I think the estimates that I have seen are the fact that small businesses much like McArthur’s probably experience a dollar more per day adding up to about $365 a year, which is a small price to pay when you consider it would give our country energy independence, which we have been working towards for some time now.”
But, Dave McArthur did get the representative’s attention.
Next week he has a meeting at the Congressman’s office on cap and trade.
This is how you get a cap and trader’s attention.
Good job, Dave McArthur!
