Summary

No matter how President Obama spins his proposed government policies, they all amount to the same thing: a power grab. In his new book, Power Grab, bestselling author Christopher Horner shows how Team Obama wants to take critical decisions about our energy and environment out of your hands and hand them over to politicians, extreme environmental groups, and even foreign governments. From appointing "czars" and depressing America's economy through onerous regulations, to stripping you of your freedom through invasive "Green" measures, Horner shows how Obama and the liberals in Congress don't just want to run the government; they want to run your lifeand make you, your children, and grandchildren pay for it. Horner reveals how the Obama administration wants to impose mandates, raise taxes, and even subjugate our authority to international organizations such as the United Nations. From determining which kind of energy is "clean" or "sustainable," to subjecting us to extreme and unrealistic environmental treaties, to forcing us to comply with useless and economically detrimental cap-and-trade legislation, Horner reveals an out-of-control government that will make America - and the lives of its citizens - worse.
