Obama May Levy Carbon Tax to Cut U.S. Deficit
Wonder who the tax burden will fall on?

A tax starting at $20 a metric ton of carbon dioxide equivalent and rising at about 6 percent a year could raise $154 billion by 2021, Nick Robins, an analyst at the bank in London, said today in an e-mailed research note, citing Congressional Research Service estimates.
In fiscal 2008 U.S. foreign aid spending was $49.1 billion.
The next year foreign aid spending was $44.9 billion.
So instead of cutting foreign aid the government is going to play with a fragile economy and something that could hurt the middle class to essential do something that will raise less money than the cost of all the foreign aid spending we will do by the year 2021 if we continue our ways with foreign aid.

BTW does anybody think it is a good idea to borrow money from China to give to other countries? Better yet we borrow money FROM China to GIVE BACK to China.

This is one thing the GOP should be fighting against. instead of wasting time fighting gay marriage and abortion, we need to kill these crazy taxes, cut business taxes, and get rid of the taxes that killed the coal industry and send those people back to work.
the cost of building and maintaining a green home is crazy much less the time it takes to keep it going. you have to be a retired millionaire.
