DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz: The Democrat Carbon Tax Is Coming (Video)
During a recent visit to Daemen College, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was asked what was needed to break the gridlock in Congress when it comes to fighting Climate Change.
Her answer: Elect fewer members of the Tea Party
(00:00-00:14) Video below:
Reporter: ‘What can we do to get the Congress unstuck and stop denying science?”
Wasserman Schultz: “Elect fewer members of the Tea Party. That’s the political answer.”
Congresswoman Schultz then proceeded to mock Marco Rubio’s belief that man made Climate Change doesn’t exist and she continued to spread the myth that 97% of scientists believe in Global Warming just before she dropped, what should have been considered, a political oops: A carbon tax is coming (2:36-4:02):
“The carbon tax, the Cap and Trade legislation, that was originally a Republican idea. It was developed in the 1970’s when the clean air act was initially adopted. We’ve already got energy companies who are changing and national companies that are planning for the fact that are going to have to pay a carbon tax. They know it’s coming. That’s not the only solution…”
Studies prove that a Carbon Tax will drive up energy cost which would drive the U.S. economy deeper into stagnation. But that hasn’t prevented Progressives in Congress from pushing it as the solution to fighting fictional man made Climate Change. The American Clean Energy and Security Act was the last time a bill requiring a Carbon Tax actually made any headway in Congress, but it was eventually defeated. The Democrats even tried to slip in a Carbon Tax on the budget they proposed earlier this year, but it didn’t stand a chance of becoming law. So this begs the question.
If the DNC Chair is so convinced that a Carbon Tax is going to happen, and we know that one will never be passed by Congress (because of the Tea Party), then does that mean the President intends to create a Carbon Tax, or something similar, via Executive Order?
With this President’s track record of circumventing Congress, …it wouldn’t surprise me.
