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.

He later posted this message seen by 40,000 cars per week outside his bakery on Lemay Ferry Road in South St. Louis County.

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

Local radio host and blogger Dana Loesch later went to McArthur’s bakery and spoke with Dave and his brother about the cap and tax bill.
Reboot Congress has the video.

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.”

The response by Carnahan, of course, was inaccurate.
The dem’s 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.

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!

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