Democrat Plan Uses Climate Change as Excuse to Raise Taxes

From AP via The Washington Post:
"I'm trying to have everybody understand that this is going to cost and that it's going to have a measure of pain that you're not going to like," Rep. John Dingell, who is marking his 52nd year in Congress, said Wednesday.

  • A 50-cent-a-gallon tax on gasoline and jet fuel, phased in over five years, on top of existing taxes.

  • A tax on carbon, at $50 a ton, released from burning coal, petroleum or natural gas.

  • Phaseout of the interest tax deduction on home mortgages for homes over 3,000 square feet. Owners would keep most of the deduction for homes at the lower end of the scale, but it would be eliminated entirely for homes of 4,200 feet or more.
A $.50 a gallon tax on gas?!?!

A $50 a ton tax on hot air (watch out Al Gore)!?!

Increased taxes for on larger houses, usually owned to house large families (like John Edwards')!?!

This tax plan is a perfect example of how Democrats use taxes to control citizens and not to fund the government.

Keep it in mind: tax cuts raise revenue for the government; tax increases raise the level of control the government has over the population.
