AEA Launches Anti-Carbon Tax Digital Advocacy Initiative

Urges Floridians to Reject the “Curbelo Carbon Tax”

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The American Energy Alliance (AEA) has launched the first phase of a sustained anti-carbon tax initiative educating and encouraging citizens to hold their elected officials accountable for their support for destructive energy taxes. The initiative will target various congressional districts across the country, beginning with Florida’s 26th congressional district, represented by Congressman Carlos Curbelo. Curbelo is the sponsor of carbon tax legislation that would greatly increase energy prices across the board — including gasoline and utility bills.

AEA President Thomas J. Pyle made the following statement:

“By introducing H.R. 6463, Representative Carlos Curbelo has chosen to lend his name to a policy that would tax American families and small businesses, undermine our economic recovery, and increase government spending, while doing virtually nothing to improve the environment.

Florida families deserve to know whether their elected representatives are willing to reject a new tax on the energy they rely on every single day. Unfortunately, Representative Curbelo is doing just the opposite. In fact, with the authorship of the Curbelo Carbon Tax, he is leading an effort to tax our energy and hand the levers of our economy to the EPA and a newly-created ‘National Climate Commission.’

There is no such thing as a ‘conservative’ carbon tax. As Congress has recently professed, a carbon tax would be detrimental to the U.S. economy and any efforts towards implementing one should be rejected.”

The $75,000 digital ad buy will run for two weeks.
