    Actually, Carbon taxes are the best way to effectively reduce emissions acording to mainstream economics.
    Best way to send jobs overseas, too. I thought Obama beat the crap out of Romney over outsourcing jobs.

    You guys lost the competivity competition with the low-wage countries a long time ago. What's happened to the trend of unemployment (current displacement excepted)?

    Purely conjecture at this stage, although if put into writing would not so much as sniff passage in the House.

    Americans just voted for tax increases, increasing the deficit, increasing inflation and lowering income. The will of the people should prevail. Raise carbon taxes to $1 a pound. The government needs to money. If the government had a carbon tax of $1 per pound and raised taxes by 50%, not only could the government increase entitlements it also would possibly slow the growth of the debt. State and local governments should increase property taxes, licenses, fuel and utility taxes and other fees by 100%. This would allow local and state government to create all the need governmental new roles to protect the environment and everyone.

    What planet are you from where Republicans were ever for a carbon tax?

    Fiscal responsibility means lower spending.

    Carbon credits and taxes.

    Lets get serious about raising taxes and cutting those deficits. 500% tax increases on video games, cell phone data plans, and all sin taxes. Line em up and knock em down.
