I’m Hacked… You Benefit!

I am spitting mad about the “Cap and Trade” legislation that passed the House last week. This new hidden tax is going to hit the working class – our bread and butter clients – harder than anything the government has thrown at them in recent years.

Here’s what the Wall Street Journal had to say about it:

“Hit hardest would be the ‘95% of working families’ Mr. Obama keeps mentioning, usually omitting that his no-new-taxes pledge comes with the caveat ‘unless you use energy.’ Putting a price on carbon is regressive by definition because poor and middle-income households spend more of their paychecks on things like gas to drive to work, groceries or home heating.

The Congressional Budget Office – Mr. Orszag’s former roost – estimates that the price hikes from a 15% cut in emissions would cost the average household in the bottom-income quintile about 3.3% of its after-tax income every year. That’s about $680, not including the costs of reduced employment and output. The three middle quintiles would see their paychecks cut between $880 and $1,500, or 2.9% to 2.7% of income. The rich would pay 1.7%. Cap and trade is the ideal policy for every Beltway analyst who thinks the tax code is too progressive (all five of them).”

I know – it stinks, BIG TIME!

As soon as the economy starts to show signs of recovery… BAM!

They hit us with a piece of junk legislation like this.

And I’m spitting mad about it!

So, instead of throwing my mouse at my computer screen (they break very easily, something I’ve discovered since last November) I’m doing something to help you guys…

The backbone of our industry!

I’ve temporarily slashed prices on ALL my manuals and digital books, which are all listed on the following page at prices that are 40% to 60% off of retail:


And, for ANYONE who orders this week from the site, I am going to give you a FREE teleseminar next Friday:

This is my way of…

1. Saying THANKS for continuing to support my work and message during the toughest economic times in recent history –


2. Helping our industry stay STRONG, even at a time when the nation’s leadership seems dead-set on ripping the guts out of the middle-class!

And, please note that, while it’s likely I’ll continue to be hacked for an indeterminate period of time, the sale ends at 8:00 AM CST on July 2nd…

So please head over there and take advantage of it while the sale is running.


God bless America… and all of you,

    I think that pretty much overrules his tax incentives for the working class. Way to go.

    I’m with ya on this— it seems like BIG Government is out of control right now! We do have one chance and folks can contact their senators now to try to let their voices be heard. just google “contact a (yourstate) U.S. senator.

    all the best!

    Yep… if we all scream loud enough, and let our reps in Washington know how hacked we are – maybe something will change. Remember, this still has to go before the Senate.
