Conservative Reform Network

Our mission is to build a network of funding sources and a community of activists who will advance an agenda that embraces a philosophy of Constitutional Limited Government, the Rule of Law, Economic Freedom, and the traditional values that sustain individual initiative, personal autonomy and responsibility.

Our network community is dedicated to replacing current elected liberal central planners who believe in command and control socialism by a few elite technocrats, the few ruling the many, with leaders who support the freedom of the individual, free markets engaged in free trade, and free market solutions to healthcare, retirement, energy and education.

Dear Lowman,

Southwest Pennsylvania's John Murtha voted for "Cap and Trade" as did all of southeast Pennsylvania Democratic US Representatives, including Murtha allies US Rep. Allyson Schwartz and US Rep. Patrick Murthy. John Murtha's vote seems contrary to the interests of the coal miners in his district but his constituents do not seem to be complaining.

Some Democratic Representatives did and I commend them for that vote.

"Cap and Trade" increases cost of energy. Affordable energy is key to America's productive businesses and productive jobs and to our standard of living. "Cap and Trade" puts America's businesses and jobs at competitive disadvantage with India and China and other countries.

This study analyzes the Impact on Energy Prices and the Factors Leading to Higher Electricity Prices, the Impact on Economic Growth (our standard of living), the Impact on Industry, the Impact on Low Income Families, and the Impact on State Budget - all negative.

Cap and Trade Creators Have Second Thoughts

Now they tell us! The economists who came up with the Cap and Trade idea are changing their minds, which is, actually, to be commended. Notably, however, they cannot state the cost of climate change to the economy. This is something similar to Bjorn Lomborg, author of "The Skeptical Environmentalist".
