Read here. Everyone and his mama now knows that Obama promised "skyrocketing" energy prices, and, by Allah God, he actually delivered that result. He carried out his promise while keeping unemployment high and squeezing the wallet of middle America. Now, the GOP's Obama-lite candidate wants to build on Obama's big government economic and energy disasters.
Mitt Romney, the current leading poll contender for the GOP presidential nomination, has written a book calling for 'carbon taxes' to be assessed on fossil fuels. Soooo...Romney's solution to the economy and energy problems is to raise prices of energy even higher for the average American, while continuing Obama's policy to discourage cheap fossil fuels. Brilliant!
Just what this country needs - impoverish more Americans and drive more jobs overseas to countries with lower costs.
Romney is a big government, liberal Massachusetts Republican whose RomneyCare was the genesis of ObamaCare. And now he wants to pay his respects to Obama by doubling down on economic misery and skyrocketing energy prices.
Why would the leading GOP contender, labeled "conservative" by the MSM press, propose such idiocy? Well, the Federal government needs more revenues to pay for the favored spendthrift policies of big government technocrats and politicians. By taxing fossil fuels, the carbon tax would automatically open up the spigots to American wallets on a daily basis. Once this tax is implemented, it would go on forever, with more increases implemented in the future when needed, just like the social security payroll tax.
So there is no misunderstanding by the naive and gullible, the Romney proposed carbon tax is a perpetual scheme to suck-the-money into the Washington D.C. blackhole of out-of-control spending, incompetence and political corruption.
Of course, Romney the slickster won't admit this as being the reason. Instead he states we need a carbon tax to save Americans from "global warming" that's been warming cooling Americans for the last 15 years. Whatever, Mitt...
