Hello Canada! Are you ready — ready for a new national tax on carbon that will ding pocketbooks across the country? My bet is that a new carbon tax is coming, made almost inevitable by Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s full-bore push to secure Washington’s approval of the Keystone XL pipeline.
For early clues on the carbon tax/Keystone trade-off, tune in Tuesday night to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address. As the president speaks, he will be alert to the chorus of Hollywood stars, environmental activists, editorial writers and industry leaders who are pushing for him to make the biggest climate-change decision he can possibly make: Impose a carbon tax."
If the Republicans go through with this tax, they are dead to me in any elections. I will do everything I can to vote AGAINST ANY Republican who votes for any progressive tax based on faulty data, just so Obama and the Democrats can pander to their base.
Contact your congressman or woman and let them know how you feel about this.
