Well, if Barack Obama says so. Seems like a lot of folks are distrustful of the Democrat's claims that we can simultaneously defeat "global warming" and add "millions of new jobs" with a tax that is not a tax and that will apparently not be felt by anyone anywhere:
“Americans have mixed feelings about the historic climate change bill that passed the House on Friday, but 42% say it will hurt the U.S. economy. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 19% believe the climate change bill passed by the House on Friday will help the economy.

Since Obama came into office, Fox has continued not only winning, but doing so at unprecedented levels.
