“Global Warming”; Just another tax grab…

I don’t buy the “sky is falling” mentality behind the “Global Warming” crowd. Most people are with me on this based on the polls I have seen. Do they think it’s an issue? You bet, they are bombarded every day with the environmentalist’s that are profiteering on the fear, like Al Gore. But when you peel away the rhetoric and look at what’s behind the push on global warming politics; it’s a tax grab. This Washington Post article is exactly what this crowd is looking for, an excuse to steal more money from the taxpayers of this country.

Dealing with global warming will be painful, says one of the most powerful
Democrats in Congress. To back up his claim he is proposing a recipe many people
won't like _ a 50-cent gasoline tax, a carbon tax and scaling back tax breaks
for some home owners.
"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 in an
interview with The Associated Press.

My first thought is 52 years in congress is way too long, and it is time to let some fresh blood in the house. Maybe someone that knows how to work a computer, and isn’t using a fountain pen to write his memos, and possibly someone who has answers other than tax increases. Move on rep Dingell, move on; please.

Here are a few more “bright” ideas from this “representative":

Dingell says he hasn't rule out such a so-called "cap-and-trade" system, either,
but that at least for now he wants to float what he believes is a better idea.
He will propose for discussion:
_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.
He estimates that would affect 10 percent of homeowners. He says "it's
only fair" to tax those who buy large suburban houses and create urban sprawl.
Historic and farm houses would be exempted.

There you have the global warming crowd’s true agenda; to punish you for success under the guise of “saving the world”. Bull is what I say. Throw these bums out. Are you tired of this crowd like I am? Man am I tired of this same old tune!
