Dems Platform Calls for a Carbon Tax

The 2016 Democratic Party platform endorses a carbon tax on the American people. The carbon tax language, added at the last minute, states:

“Democrats believe that carbon dioxide, methane, and other greenhouse gases should be priced to reflect their negative externalities, and to accelerate the transition to a clean economy and help meet out climate goals.”

Wake up people, this is just another tax that will hurt the shrinking middle class
the rich can afford it
the poor will be subsidized so it wont cost them

Global Climate Warming Change is BS
proof, they manipulated the numbers, if it were true, there would be no need to do that


The move by Democrats to impose a carbon tax comes in clear contrast to the 2016 Republican Party platform opposition to any carbon tax:

“We oppose any carbon tax.”

Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform, predicts the Democrat call for a carbon tax will have electoral consequences: “When counting to 270 – the number of electoral votes needed to win the presidency – the Republicans may have already won the election in five short words: ‘We oppose any carbon tax.’ Note the overlap between new fracking states – Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Colorado – and the swing states to reach 270 for any candidate.”

They will tax whatever they want
after all, gives them more money to play with
more money to socially engineer society to their whims

like most of their wonderful ideas wont affect them so they don't care
Bad public schools, doesn't affect them their kids go to private schools
failing social security, doesn't affect them they have a different retirement system
Barry Care, doesn't affect them, they have a different system
