Local Bakery Says Cap and Trade Will Kill His Business ***UPDATE***

mcarthurs_bakery_signLiving in the St. Louis area is great.  This is a wonderful city with lots to do and also a great environment to raise your family.  To that end it is always good to see a local business make national news.

A local business, McArthur’s Bakery, decided they had had enough when local Representative Russ Carnahan voted to approve the 1,500 page Cap and Trade bill.  Randy and Dave McArthur decided to do what they could to let their customers and others passing the bakery in south St. Louis what his US Representative did – he posted it on his electronic sign.  This attracted not only the attention of Rep. Carnahan, but also the likes of FoxNews.

According to Randy McArthur:

“We make (our product) with electricity, we bake it with gas, we refrigerate and freeze it with electricity and we distribute it with gas and oil,” said McArthur, who said he worries that high prices could cost his company up to $15,000 a year in an industry with a very tight margin for profit.

That video really highlights the concern of small businesses and the real cost of this massive expansion of government for a non-problem.  Hopefully this will start a real uprising of small businesses to show the “real” effects of cap and trade.

 

***UPDATE***

Dave McArthur was interviewed on Glenn Beck’s show last week.  Good interview.

 

Of course, this is just my opinion.
