I do not believe the president has the power to raise new taxes or increase existing ones, that is exclusively the Congress' authority. So, these buttfucks can say whatever they want but they ain't getting that shit through the US Senate until 2022 unless they win both Senate runoff races in Georgia AND abolish the filibuster.

AND if they manage to take the Senate in 2022 and keep the House, it would totally murder the Democratic Party in 2024 and beyond no matter how much election fraud they can muster if they managed to pass those taxes. Even just advocating for such could cost them either chamber or both, not to mention the WH in 2024. These people are their own worst political enemies, and don't appear to realize it.

Cnsnews and the alt-right Echo Chamber is hard at work weaving a web of confusion, misinformation, and conspiracy surrounding the incoming Biden Administration.

I do not support carbon taxes and they are not going to happen but they would do no more damage to the country than the massive debt Trump left has.
It would cost the American taxpayers a shit ton of money,and for what?
What are they going to spend these trillions on that will make a difference in so called man made glowbull warming?

Yeah but one or two of his cabinet picks voiced support at one time for some tax or an increase so, they must want trillions in new taxes and Joe was obviously lying, on purpose. Damn the swamp,</sarcasm>

I have NO idea what they plan to spend it on. How am I to answer a question to something that isn't even real?

The liberals who want higher taxes should just send more money to the government. Nothing is stopping you. You can even earmark it for the debt specifically.

Just another money grab by the dems/socialist.
The scary part is they always spend at least twice as much revenue as they take in.

Just think of all that money.

That's because they fail to consider how their new tax will influence people's behavior.

The assumption they make is that the production of the item in question will stay steady and continue to increase, insuring a steady supply of tax money.


20 years ago, lawmakers decided to provide health care for indigent children and thought the best way to fund it was a large cigarette tax. That way, most people wouldn't pay, and the kids would get their surgeries.

The problem was that large cigarette taxes discouraged people from smoking and cigarette sales and taxes actually declined. And the cost of children's medical care kept soaring.

So income, sales and other levies had to pick up the cost of a program that politicians promised were covered elsewhere.

Ah, so Al Gore will make $500 billion or so, with other Democrat 'businessmen' getting another $1 trillion to sread around among the Party crime syndicate. Meanwhile India, Red China, and a several dozen other countries will build another 200 coal plants while Biden/Harris keep busy running pogroms against Evul Xians N Stuff.

What??? Don't remember Al Gore's 'carbon credits' scam he's raking in huge bucks on??? Silly you, not following the money.

At least you admit manmade glowbull warming isnt real.
So you have no idea how spending trillions will help,neither do I.

Will it be OK if they skip the taxes and just continue to spend recklessly like the last few decades?

Not a dime of those cigarette taxes went to 'health care' for anybody; if that were the case smokers shold have had free health care for life from all the money embezzled from them.

I believe real or not we should do as much as we can to clean things up. We should just want to do that as decent humans.
