Wants to steal $3.3 billion dollars from Washington residents for a useless boondoggle.
Washington Governor Claims ‘Just 59 Days’ To Save Children From Global Warming
By Michael Bastasch
(Excerpts) – Washington state’s Democratic Governor Jay Inslee warned there was “just 59 days” to save future generations from “an endless cycle of crop-killing droughts one year, and rivers spilling their banks the next.”
Inslee went on a lengthy Twitter rant in efforts to convince the state legislature to pass legislation to tax carbon dioxide emissions from power plants and industrial facilities.
Inslee’s plan would tax carbon dioxide emissions at $20 a ton in 2019, that would gradually rise at 3.5 percent above inflation each following year. Inslee’s office estimates it will raise $3.3 billion over the next four years.
The plan could raise household electricity prices five percent, and gas prices by about 10 percent, according to official estimates.
In other words, Inslee wants to steal $3.3 billion dollars from Washington residents who voted down his last carbon tax plan by a wide margin in 2016.
