Tax the middle class to death cause they can't afford a $80k+ dollar electric car that the rich are receiving government subsidies for buying. You already drove my "affordable healthcare" premiums through the roof. Dick head.

When the Soviet union fell, the communists, like rats fleeing a sinking ship, came over hear to join the environmental movement and Democrat party.

I agree with you in principal. But I think the GOP obstructionism really gutted things that would have made the healthcare system actually work.

We are far behind other countries in terms of cost and outcomes - even highly socialized systems. The GOP had a decade long, immature tantrum, and prevented anything but a broken compromise.

The only reason America can't do better healthcare is ALL THE POLITICIANS.

Many things the government wants to encourage or discourage are the subjects of tax laws. They want more children and home ownership then they offer deductions. They want you to stop smoking they put more taxes on tobacco. They want people to invest more then they lower capital gains taxes. Seems like a good plan to tax the polluters more than the people trying to prevent more pollution.

Before Obamacare no insurance company would sell my family insurance coverage.

In principle a carbon tax could be offset by lowering other taxes. For example British Columbia's carbon tax had a net negative effect on government revenue because they overestimated carbon tax revenue and cut other taxes by too much.

You couldn't make due with the money I already gave you last year ($34,000+)

This is a load of horse shit.

Proper regulation will make things more expensive - consumer goods, fuel, energy. Because companies will have to spend money on innovation to control the wastefulness of their profits. This will drive competition into a more efficient vector - and Capitalism will work out.

What a tax is, is just another layer of wasteful, corrupt politicians who pick and choose which corporations to give subsidies to by whoever buys them the nicest prostitutes. There is absolutely nothing our government does that is elegant. We need less Government, and more honest competition.

The EPA is corrupt and bought out. [Nestle stealing water from California anyone? Monsanto getting Glyphosate research buried for decades anyone?]

If the Government wants more money, it's because they already have someone lined up to FUCKING STEAL IT.

If the purpose of this is to reduce co2, why not cut other taxes equally to offset it?

Maybe because none of this has anything to do with reducing co2.
