Washington Governor Admits Global Warming About Redistribution of Wealth!

Gov. Jay Inslee, claiming there are “just 59 days” left to stop Global Warming, is demanding Washington state lawmakers tax fossil-fuel emissions that increases 3.5% EVERY YEAR… to give to poor people.

Governor Inslee admitted the tax is really about wealth redistribution! “Money would offset taxes or go to poor families.”

Inslee wants lawmakers to pass a global warming tax on carbon dioxide emissions from power plants and industrial facilities.

The Daily Caller explains:

Inslee’s plan would tax carbon dioxide emissions at $20 a ton in 2019, that would gradually rise at 3.5 percent above inflation each following year. Inslee’s office estimates it will raise $3.3 billion over the next four years.

About $950 million would go toward education programs. The rest would go toward green energy programs and research, water infrastructure, wildfire mitigation. Some money would offset taxes or go to poor families.

The plan could raise household electricity prices five percent, and gas prices by about 10 percent, according to official estimates.

Wait, I thought this tax was to save the world from a global catastrophe?

“It is time to step up,” Inslee told lawmakers at the Capitol. The impacts of climate change, he added, “will be carried by our children, our economy, our security and our quality of life.”

The state legislature’s session ends in 59 days, on March 8. Democrats have a slim majority in both state legislative chambers.

Well, if there are only 59 days left, his tax isn’t going to help. We’re doomed!

Inslee used his State of the State address to propose the new tax on carbon emissions, which would make his state the first to levy taxes on commercial and industrial polluters.

Inslee’s plan would tax oil and gas emissions, and emissions by power plants, at a rate of $20 per metric ton beginning in mid-2019. The tax rate would increase annually by 3.5 percent.

The irony, is economically, the ever increasing global warming carbon tax would hit low and middle-income residents.

“For most of us, this is about a tax increase and controlling people,” said Rep. David Taylor, R-Moxee.

Senate Minority Leader Mark Schoesler, a Ritzville Republican, said people who cut their energy consumption couldn’t triumph against an ever-escalating carbon tax.

“You cannot win,” he said. “It keeps going up.”
