Argument: Renewable Electricity Standard equivalent to an energy tax
Jonathan DuHamel. "National Renewable Energy Standard Will Mean Higher Electricity Bills." Tuscon Citizen. September 30th, 2010: "National renewable energy standards for electricity will have the effect of a national energy tax which will raise rates on families and businesses, cause loss of jobs, and further depress the economy. What was that promise Obama made about taxes and the middle class? Renewable energy standards are just another rip-off of consumers and taxpayers by rent-seekers, lobbyists, and radical greens."
