On Thursday, Glenn Beck latched on to a discredited argument being promoted by conservatives that the climate bill would increase personal income taxes by 15% and cost every American $1761. (Beck takes the fuzzy math even further and implies that it would cost this amount PER DAY.) The Treasury memos Beck and others use to validate this claim, according to Media Matters. "...Do not address the current House climate change bill but, rather, a proposal that would auction 100 percent of the emissions allowances; the bill under consideration spends revenue created by the program to offset costs to households and businesses."

Beck then falls into nonsensical rants about Czars, how the Democrats are being played by the Obama Administration, and then pretends he's a southern belle.
