Consumer Alert! A few House Republicans have introduced a bill that would immediately hike gas and electricity costs for all American families, manufacturers, and businesses.
The bill, introduced by Representative Carlos Curbelo (FL-26) and co-sponsored by Representatives Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-8) and Francis Rooney (FL-19), would implement an economy-wide carbon tax, raising gas prices and increasing energy expenses for American families. It would also create a new tax on many of the imported goods we rely on, but that’s not all.
The carbon tax would allow the Environmental Protection Agency to determine which manufacturers must pay the tax, giving the federal government power to pick winners and losers in the market and creating extreme regulatory uncertainty. All this with little or no benefit to the environment. But where’s our money from the new tax revenue going? That’s up to the federal government too.
We need your help to fight against the carbon tax! Tell your Representative that a carbon tax would be detrimental to all Americans!
