Anti-Carbon Tax Coalition Letter

June 10, 2019
By Grover Norquist, et al.

A carbon tax increases the cost of everything Americans buy and lowers Americans’ effective take home pay.

More than 75 organization signed an open letter to Congress opposing any form of tax on carbon dioxide emissions. The letter states: 

We oppose any carbon tax. A carbon tax raises the cost of heating your home in the winter and cooling your home in the summer. It raises the cost of filling your car. A carbon tax increases the cost of everything Americans buy and lowers Americans’ effective take home pay. A carbon tax increases the power, cost and intrusiveness of the government in our lives.
