Read here. Despite the U.S. economy being in the tank and millions yearning for high growth that will produce jobs, John Bryson favors imposing a carbon tax that will penalize commerce growth and hurt employment prospects.
Who's John Bryson? He is Obama's choice for U.S. Commerce Secretary - a choice who favors taxes to punish commerce but is appointed to a position that supposedly represents commerce interests. Unbelievable.
Seriously, Obama has to be completely brain-dead regarding business and economic growth.
"Should energy consumers pay extra taxes to fund government-mandated and subsidized renewable energy technologies? "Absolutely yes," says John Bryson, President Obama's nominee for Commerce Secretary. He made the remark at a meeting of the Commonwealth Club of California in 2009 and went on to extol the virtues of hidden rates in California, a state encumbered with some of the nation's highest electricity and unemployment rates."
