    The more people you have, the less freedom is allowed. The more resources are scarce, the fewer choices are available to you.

    You're just going to have to learn to live with it. Or eliminate about half the population...

    @harold_lloyd I am all for that...lets start sending the democrats back to Mexico and Africa. That would reduce the fiscal dead weight tremendously and carbon foot prints ten fold.

    I didn't bother to read it!, and I won't, we don't have as big a tax problem as we do a waste problem and I urge all citizens to resist unnecessary taxes until the government reals itself in. We cannot in reality cover any longer, their
    waste and abuse!

    Just another excuse to take more money from the working people to waste on those that do nothing. Quit spending like drunken whores and you won't need to tax us to death.

    Agreed, spending has to be toned down. It is absolutely the reason we have so much debt. But you can't decrease the debt you already own without ideas, and this one is just going with that line of thinking.

    @Fishbone345 not sure i follow, what line of thinking are you talking about. Also, toned down is going to cut it, cut being the key word. Anything that was not contributed to by the now recipients needs to be cut. Anything social that can not support itself neeeds to be looked at. Any programs that have been mismanaged need to be made whole at the cost of bureaucracy.

    @marine1 I'm talking about the debt that is already there. You can make all the cutbacks you want, the debt that we have accrued is going nowhere unless you pay on it. Something we haven't done, we've simply been adding to it.

    @Fishbone345 I agree, so we stop spending and pay on it. Anything this side of SS & med/care gets cut. Only reason SS & MC is exempt is because it was paid for and missmanaged and the system that missmanaged should suffer first.

    It is laughable that we should ever ok our corrupt Government to take more taxes from us. We've been hearing this same crap for decade after decade. They refuse to cut spending and spending is the problem, not revenue. When we get ourselves in debt what do we do? We cut our spending until our debt is gone or under control. What does the Government always do? They find something to tax and tell us we must raise taxes to get our debt under control. THEY NEVER HAVE NOR EVER WILL GET OUR DEBT UNDER CONTROL BY RAISING TAXES! They have taxed everything we touch and our debt keeps growing. Cut spending across the board, not just the military!

    You can tax America's businesses and it's people all you want on this, but it won't make a lick of difference with the carbon emmissions created by less wealthy countries. The U.S. has and will continue to become greener and more energy efficient without this carbon tax. The only thing a carbon tax will do is hurt the people. The one thing this article got %100 correct is that we are broke and highly in debt, so now they want to take it out of our butts. The truth is instead of a tax, the only thing the government has to do for cleaner air is change building code specifications for all new builds and retrofits of industrail and commercial applications. They already do it to some extent, why not go all out? That will also create green jobs and it won't screw people over!

    My local power company recently invested a butt load of money into cleaning up their coal emissions. Now with natural gas being so cheap and the war on coal, they're putting out another butt load to upgrade their natural gas delivery. I can't wait to see their rate case. I may have to go back to burning wood.

    I realize now that your name is about the same as someone named "Tiny" who is actually six foot six and weighs three hundred pounds.

    I am in favor of pollution taxes to reduce pollution, but if the idea is to balance the budget, a value-added-tax would be better.

    Yeah lets drive more business out of the country and raise energy prices even higher. Maybe the President should focus on building more Nuclear power plants. That would solve a lot of problems at the same time.

    Brilliant!

    I would add: make it TAX SHIFT... raise taxes on pollution and carbon and you can raise enough money to END all income taxes.

    No, this is nothing but giving more money to the Rothschild banks (the fed) who will steal it. Just like social security, flood and disaster insurance and the list goes on.
