Yes, we can. Just not with Barack Obama’s energy cap-and-tax plan.

Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK), has a beautiful op-ed in the Washington Post today.

It does two things.

  • Slaps all those people in the face that thought Sarah Palin was just going to “go away”.
  • Shows what’s wrong with the President’s cap-and-trade bill.

I love this part:

In addition to immediately increasing unemployment in the energy sector, even more American jobs will be threatened by the rising cost of doing business under the cap-and-tax plan. For example, the cost of farming will certainly increase, driving down farm incomes while driving up grocery prices. The costs of manufacturing, warehousing and transportation will also increase.

The ironic beauty in this plan? Soon, even the most ardent liberal will understand supply-side economics.

As they say, read the whole thing.
