Guest essay by Eric Worrall
Back in 2009, Obama said that his energy plan will cause energy bills to skyrocket.
In 2015, Obama says his energy plan will save you money (from 14:45)
The following is a condensed version of the relevant parts of the speeches (note the full 2015 speech contains additional material of interest, such as Obama’s comments about the impact of his new plan on poor people);
What has changed since 2009, other than a cap and trade system being replaced with straight out energy regulation? The new plan seems to call for the same expensive power plant changes, which Obama said would cause energy bills to skyrocket, when he spoke back in 2009.
What do you think? Are you reassured by President Obama’s statement, that you will save money on your energy bills, under President Obama’s 2015 clean energy plan?
