So much for the Democrats’ mantra, they are doing “all we can to reduce gas and energy prices.”
In the New York Senatorial debate on Sunday Chucky Schumer inadvertently told the truth: he wants an energy tax to make gas and electric bills MORE expensive. Schumerdodged the question the first time he was asked in the debate against Republican Joe Pinion, but the moderator asked again and got an answer voters in the rest of the country should pay attention to:
“The carbon tax is something I would seriously consider. It has to be worked out. It doesn’t yet have majority support.”
If he gets that expanded majority, we think this carbon tax will be a high-priority item for Biden and the Dems in 2023.
