Local Bakery Revolts Against Congressional Cap-&-Taxer Russ Carnahan

A local bakery chain in St. Louis County had words for liberal Congressman Russ Carnahan (D-MO) today after he voted for the largest tax increase on small business in US history on Friday- the Cap and Trade bill.

The owner of McArthur’s Bakery in St. Louis called into The Jamie Allman Show this morming on 97.1 FM and said that the enormous costs that this bill will heap on small business will cause his chain of bakeries to close shop.

He later posted this message for drivers on Lemay Ferry Road in South St. Louis County.

“Russ Carnahan voted to close us and other small business.”
That about says it.

Michelle Malkin has more on the number of jobs that will be lost from this horrible pile of sh*t.

UPDATE: Russ Carnahan’s office responded to McArthur’s Bakery today.
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.”

The response by Carnahan, of course, was inaccurate.
The democrats cap and trade bill will decimate the economy and result in the loss of nearly 4 million jobs all in the name of junk science.
