Jeff Flake, notorious RINO who’s been a thorn in the conservative movement, is now pushing for climate change taxes on Americans. The Daily Caller reports:
Outgoing Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake will soon co-introduce legislation to tax carbon dioxide emissions, according to news reports.
Flake, who will not be returning to Congress next year, and Delaware Sen. Chris Coon, a Democrat, will introduce their carbon tax bill as soon as Wednesday. The bill is unlikely to go anywhere with just two weeks left in the current legislative session.
Flake and Coon’s bill will be the Senate companion to bipartisan House carbon tax legislation introduced in November. The Washington Times first reported of Flake’s carbon tax bill Wednesday, and The Hill later confirmed it.
Like the House bill, Flake’s carbon tax bill would tax emissions at $15 per ton — a rate that would rise $10 per year until greenhouse gas emissions, hitting $100 per ton in 2030. All of the revenues raised through the tax will get rebated to households to compensate for higher energy costs.
Considering the huge protests that have erupted in France over climate agenda taxes, it is surprising that Flake would not see this as a problem. He will not be missed.
Flake is aptly named!
Jeff Flake, the Flake just won’t go away, will he? This so-called Republican Senator and backstabber should be put away in a padded cell for the rest of his life for being a Democrat in Republican clothing.
This asshole is out in a couple of weeks and it’s now he wants to start to introduce legislation. Give me a break!
Clueless Jeff Flake decided to not run for re election because he found out that the people found out that he is clueless. He is truly a moron.
