"We have to put a price on carbon, and the United States of America has to lead the world to solve the climate crisis," he said.
Yes, you already have a price on carbon....your carbon credit bullshit. For those of you new to this concept, a "carbon credit" is basically your right to use any and all energy and carbon emitting device so long as you invest in the company that takes the carbon back out of the environment....want to guess who owns a sizeable share of all companies who offer this service? Why...it's Al Gore. So of course he wants a price on carbon, because the cost of using it goes to him. What a great scam Al. What a dick.
Democratic morons are drooling over the prospects of this new carbon tax idea, led by Moonbat John Dingell. In yet another instance of "I told you so"....here is possibly the most terrifying article in the last 6 years. Some excerpts from the Washington Post article:
_A 50-cent-a-gallon tax on gasoline and jet fuel, phased in over five years, on top of existing taxes.
_A tax on carbon, at $50 a ton, released from burning coal, petroleum or natural gas.
_Phaseout of the interest tax deduction on home mortgages for homes over 3,000 square feet. Owners would keep most of the deduction for homes at the lower end of the scale, but it would be eliminated entirely for homes of 4,200 feet or more.
So let's see, they are set to let President Bush's tax cuts (the only reason we are not in recession right...and which lead to an increase in government revenues due to re-investment) expire and let the tax-free Internet shopping provision expire. Both are major tax increases...the largest ever. They continually support more programs which will dwarf even these two ginormous mistakes through a back door socialized medicine program in SCHIP as well as their front door proposal in socialized medicine by promoting socialized medicine. I am truly terrified for our nation's future if these big-government, tax and spend, lying defeatists win. Ugh.
