Key Vote: Expressing the sense of Congress that a carbon tax would be detrimental to the United States economy
Vote h363-2018

Description

By deliberately raising the cost of energy, a carbon tax would increase the cost of producing goods and services—with particular damage done to the electricity and transportation sectors. Such a tax would undoubtedly have a negative effect on economic output, diminish Americans\' purchasing power, and effectively reduce their real wages. A carbon tax is a losing proposition that Americans cannot afford, especially while we reap the benefits of an energy renaissance.
