They can propose a carbon tax, but certainly, Congress has the right (and presumably the will) to shoot it down, no?
Or, am I again over-estimating the common-sense and basic belief in conservative values of the Republican House majority?
We are hiring another 12,000 IRS agents to monitor OBCare, what’s another 15,000 or so to track carbon off-sets.
Nothing even Congress can stop this dictator from a carbon tax. So lets quit the BS.
I’ll agree to a carbon tax if we can trade the income, capital gains, corporate, and payroll taxes for it.
They’ll never get this garbage through the congress. They couldn’t even do it when they had the majority in both houses.
Perhaps EPA can simply dictate fees, penalties, contributions to remediation funds, license requirements, rent charges for air, and such totalling a trillion dollars a year.
On second thought, make that two trillion. And a half
It sure would be great if people demanded spending cuts. But there are enough old people on just THIS SITE that DEMAND their welfare (i.e., Social Security and Medicare) never be touched that we will NEVER be able to get control of spending.
So, for that, I support ANY TAX that hits the Middle Class (since that’s where the money is), because the alternative is to leave my kids with a BANKRUPT country.
A carbon tax is a good start, so is a value-added tax, and so is letting the Bush Tax Cuts expire.
When people ON THIS SITE are ready to give up their welfare, then I’ll be ready to discuss keeping taxes low.
The answer is yes, it will be imposed in 2 years.
The bedwetting goobers at the GOP won’t do anything to stop it. They’ve got a plan, given to them by the DNC white boys and the liberal “media”, on how to get the “hispanic” vote and they won’t want to screw it up. LOL! Clowns.
