Title: Francis Rooney Endorses Large Tax Increase (R-FL)

Call Congressman Francis Rooney at 202-225-2536 and ask him to remove his name from the carbon tax bill.

Congressman Francis Rooney (R-Fla.) has endorsed a bill that would impose a significant tax increase on the American people.

The bill is a carbon tax designed to raise the cost of everyday life. Rooney is the only Republican sponsoring the bill. Voters across the country continue to reject carbon taxes -- even in blue states -- but Rooney is pushing the bill anyway.

Rooney claims the bill is "revenue neutral" but this is not a truthful assertion. The bill is a tax increase, a very large tax increase.

Details:

The bill imposes a massive and continually ratcheting national energy tax, allowing politicians to raise taxes without ever having to vote.

How big is the tax increase? Likely north of $1 trillion over a decade. There isn't an official score on the bill yet, but a recent CBO report estimated the revenue a generic $25 per ton (increasing 2% per year) carbon tax bill would raise: $1.1 trillion over ten years. The Rooney bill starts at $15 per ton and increases by a much steeper $10 per ton per year (and in some cases by $15 per ton per year). By any reasonable estimate, the Rooney carbon tax will impose an extremely large tax increase on the American people.

The bill gives czar-like powers to EPA and IRS chiefs. The bill directs the IRS and EPA to work closely together on enforcement. The EPA chief is given the power to impose "monitoring, reporting, and record-keeping requirements" on Americans. The bill also gives the EPA chief power to conduct "investigations" and force "information collection."

The bill shovels taxpayer money into a slush fund for IRS, EPA, and State Department bureaucrats. The IRS and EPA will have direct access to taxpayer money for what the bill calls "Administrative Expenses" and "Other Administrative Expenses." For reasons unclear, State Department bureaucrats will also have access to the taxpayer funds. What could go wrong?

The bill imposes income tax on the carbon tax "dividend." Yes, the government fleeces the taxpayers and sends the carbon tax money to DC, where it is siphoned off by various agencies. Then a leftover "dividend" is supposedly sent out, which is then subject to income tax. Got it? The "dividend" will need to be reconciled on your federal and state tax return. You'll have the joy of chasing down another tax form before April 15 each year. Here is the bill language:

“FEE TREATMENT OF PAYMENTS. -- Amounts paid under this subsection shall be includible in gross income."

The bill attempts backdoor family planning by considering a child -- and anyone under the age of 19 -- to be one-half of a person. Because the carbon tax will raise the cost of everything, household budgets will get squeezed. Since energy is built into the price of everything, the government will end up with increased control over your livelihood. And the carbon tax bill considers children and all Americans under the age of 19 to be one-half of one person. Why? Backdoor family planning? Here it is, straight from the bill text:

"A carbon dividend payment is one pro-rata share for each adult and half a pro- rata share for each child under 19 years old of amounts available for the month in the Carbon Dividend Trust Fund."

The bill greases the skids for a Value-Added Tax, a cash cow for even bigger government.

The bill authorizes carbon tax enforcement agents. The bill authorizes carbon tax enforcement agents to collect the new tax on energy used by Americans. As if customs enforcement doesn't already have enough on its plate, the bill states:

“The revenues collected under this chapter may be used to supplement appropriations made available in fiscal years 2020 and thereafter -

“(1) to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in such amounts as are necessary to administer the carbon border fee adjustment.”

The bill authorizes certain government sharing of Social Security "individual identity information." More bureaucrats will have access to your information. The bill states:

“The Commissioner of Social Security shall, on written request, disclose to officers and employees of the Department of the Treasury individual identity information which has been disclosed to the Social Security Administration as is necessary to administer section 9512"

Americans for Tax Reform opposes the bill. "The proposed carbon tax is a gas tax and a tax on your electric bill. Worse, it increases automatically year after year so the politicians can raise your taxes without ever having to vote," said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. "The tax will be hidden in the price of all goods and services. A hidden tax. A permanent tax. An uncontrolled tax that increases without end."

Call Congressman Francis Rooney at 202-225-2536 and ask him to remove his name from the carbon tax bill.


Poster Comment:

Rooney has joined Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who made the details of the “Green New Deal” public. The highlights include ending the use of fossil fuels by 2030, decommissioning every nuclear power plant in the next ten years, ending air travel, mandating all new jobs be unionized, rebuilding “every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency,” and blanket “economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.”

Now that the outline of the “Green New Deal” is available for public scrutiny, it is worthwhile to take a look at all of our lawmakers who have endorsed Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal. According to the Sunrise Movement – the outside organization advocating for the “Green New Deal” – 74 congressional lawmakers have agreed to cosponsor Ocasio-Cortez’s resolution for a Green New Deal.

All cosponsors are Democratic lawmakers and include six presidential candidates. Below is the complete list that Rooney joins.

Kamala Harris (CA) Elizabeth Warren (MA) Cory Booker (NJ) Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) Amy Klobuchar (MN) Bernie Sanders (VT)

Can't hold a candle to Illinois. Our new governor wants to raise the state income tax from 4.95% to 5.95% (a 20% increase!) -- in addition to the existing state sales tax of 6.25% (10.25% in Chicago).

But that's not enough. The Chicago Teachers Union is demanding a 3.5% Chicago income tax. The revenue will provide free community college, free public transportation and enlarge the teacher's pension fund.
