While our economy continues to slog through recession, while Congress and the President authorized spending even more money that we don’t have in the form of "tax rebates", and while we already pay close to 20 cents per gallon in federal gasoline taxes, Congressman John Dingell from Michigan, is proposing another 50-cent-per-gallon tax on gasoline.
- Do nothing to stop "global warming"
- Impose even more unnecessary "sin taxes" upon us
- Bring the economy to a screeching halt
While Dingell’s idea will likely lie dormant until after the 2008 election, the idea of carbon taxes is not. Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain all support some type of system that either directly or indirectly will raise prices to penalize polluters.
