Conservative Coalition Rallies to Warn of Disastrous Economic Impact of Carbon Tax​

WASHINGTON – This afternoon the American Energy Alliance and 19 co-signing organizations sent a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy requesting that H. Con. Res 119, expressing the sense of Congress that a carbon tax would be detrimental to the United States economy, be brought before the House of Representatives for consideration at the earliest opportunity.

“No matter how the revenue is divvied up, the core of all carbon taxes is the same — American consumers will be forced to pay more on their electric bills, more at the pump, and more for consumer goods with no tangible benefit for having done so.

“There’s no such thing as a ‘conservative carbon tax’. Congress has made great strides in putting money back in the hands of American families through tax reform, it would be a shame to negate that impact through an increase in energy prices that a carbon tax would inevitably cause,” said AEA President Thomas J. Pyle.
