Brian Fitzpatrick Carbon Tax Bill

Brian Fitzpatrick Carbon Tax Bill — Brian Fitzpatrick, Pennsylvania’s 1st District Republican congressman, will be introducing a “carbon tax bill” today says the Washington Examiner. It will be similar to Market Choice Act introduced in 2018 by Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FLA26) which died in committee.

The Curbelo bill imposed a tax of $24 per metric ton on industrial carbon-dioxide emissions, beginning in 2020 and rising annually at a rate of 2 percent above inflation.

In return, federal taxes on gasoline, diesel and aviation fuel would be repealed. The payers would mostly be operators of coal and natural gas power plants.

This means paying more for lighting, air-conditioning and heat, and maybe less for food and transportation.

And of course, coal plants (and mines and their jobs) would soon disappear as natural gas produces much less CO2.

Which would naturally mean less revenue which means someone is going to pound his fist and say we need to bring back the gasoline tax.

The claim that most of carbon tax money will be used to rebuild infrastructure also deserves a big LOL as that is what the gasoline and diesel tax is supposed to do now and obviously doesn’t.

We can’t jump on Fitzpatrick too much. Our wish is to replace all coal and NG plants with nuclear and hydro-electric ones so we give him credit for trying.

Hey Brian, if you really want to fix infrastructure repeal the Davis-Bacon Act of 1931. Studies show it adds 20 percent to the cost of federal projects. Repealing it means 20 percent more work with same amount of money. Infrastructure problem are solved. It’s almost like magic.

And on the other hand there is Pat Toomey.

Pennsylvania’s “Republican” senator joined the Democrats in again futilely voting to repeal President Trump’s court-approved use of emergency funds to build the much-needed wall on the Mexican border.

This wall is not anti-immigration. The wall is anti-drug smuggling and anti-child trafficking. If border crossers are forced to use supervised ports of entry it becomes a whole lot harder to bring children here to be molested.

Cartel coyotes no longer abandon customers to die in the desert.

Senator, a whole lot more Pennsylvanians support this wall than KYW and the Philadelphia Inquirer will lead you to believe. This one is going to burn you.

  1. Great points through out, Bill. Thank you for sharing this info.

    “Senator, a whole lot more Pennsylvanians support this wall than KYW and the Philadelphia Inquirer will lead you to believe. This one is going to burn you.”

    I am OK with Toomey burning to a crisp, figuratively, of course.

  2. I am from Canada, and four of our ten provinces are fighting in court against this ever rising Paris Accord carbon tax that makes everything more expensive, even your property tax as all government building and cars and trucks need to pay more, my heating bill has tripled in price somehow, because not only do they have to collect it from us they also have to pay it on their buildings and cars etc. the price of everything goes up. Businesses by the scores are leaving or have left already, they cannot compete. We are praying that we get a Conservative government who will cancel this tax, but our last election was fake and this twice charged unethical Trudeau Lieberal government has just paid off (with 600million of our tax dollars) our mainstream media and they are supporting him and lying or slanting our media, Canada your neighbor may have a dictatorship taking hold.
    My grandmother was born in Pennsylvanian and it is a beautiful state I have always loved going there with her. Please take care, I love your post they are informative and sometimes very amusing thank you for this.
