Cap & Trade under attack

New Defenders of Prosperity-
David McArthur, vice president of the 52-year-old family operation of McArthur's Bakery of St. Louis, Mo.

David McArthur sees the Cap & Trade legislation that just past the House and is on it way to the Senate, as a business killer (and rightfully so) and it targets every aspect of his business that relies on the forms of energy that the American Clean Energy and Security Act points to.
David told Fox News that "We make our product with electricity, we bake it with gas, we refrigerate and freeze it with electricity and we distribute it with gas and oil and that it will cost him about an additional $15K more a year.
But, business owners, like David, along with taxpayers are fighting back.
McArthur, who penned a scathing letter to his congressmen Carnahan (D-MO), is not alone in taking the message directly to their congressman. Dozens of small protests were organized at the end of June at federal buildings and outside the offices of national lawmakers who voted for the bill by scads of business owners and taxpayer alike.

Keep it going Mr. McArthur, real Americans are with you.
