Lets start with greed, lining their pockets, then history, how did the first people here in the United States get around, no Gas, Propane, Natural Gas, Coal, no Oil, what did they use to heat, cook, light their way, Natural Resources, Wood, and how did they Travel, their Feet along with Horses, then came horse and wagon. Did they have a way to get oil from fat from animals? Maybe.
Now this Country wants to charge a tax on Carbon fuel,
[The grass-roots group Carbon Washington — which gathered more than 350,000 signatures to qualify the initiative — says a carbon tax is the best way to reduce emissions and tackle global warming. It says the tax encourages people and businesses to switch to cleaner energy by making fossil fuels more expensive.]
They say it will be more affordable for the working poor,
[The proposal is designed to be “revenue neutral,” meaning that though tax revenues would increase for fossil fuels, it would mostly be offset by a decrease in other tax revenues. (never happen remember greed) In this case, revenues would be returned to people and businesses by cutting the state sales tax by one point, (notice who it will really benefit) virtually eliminating business taxes for manufacturers and providing rebates for working families, supporters say.]
Now come to the bottom line, Utilities will go higher, take one power company, they charge costumers double, they charge a meter fee, a delivery fee, and a customer charge, they bill every two month so if your meter fee is Two Hundred ($200.00) your Delivery fee will be One Ninety Five ($195.00), that makes Three Ninety Five ($395.00) + Customer charge of Twenty one ($21.00) total $405.00 for two months with only Five days to pay it or pay a late fee. Now does that sound like it will be cheaper by charging a Carbon tax on Gas, Natural Gas, and Power to heat your home and business, it is just another way to line the pockets of the rich, and Government workers.
Now the Whole story.
