House Votes To Stop Any White House Emplaced Carbon Tax

Of course, the Democrat run US Senate will never even allow a vote on this

(The Hill) The House approved an amendment to legislation Friday that would prevent the White House from imposing a carbon tax without congressional approval.

The lower chamber agreed to Rep. Steve Scalise’s (R-La.) amendment by a 237-176 vote, with 12 Democrats crossing the aisle to support it.

The amendment was added to an underlying bill that would require Congress to OK regulations that carry a $100 million economic impact or greater. That bill is dead in its tracks in the Democratic-controlled Senate, and the White House has threatened to veto it.

As The Hill notes, the vote does serve the purpose of putting Democrats on record for supporting a “carbon” tax.

    Wait, so the House has to pass a bill to prevent the President from enacting a TAX upon it’s citizens?

    Anyone else find this in error? Why are we conducting a defensive war, when we should be attacking the enemy directly? Should we not arrest the president when he tries to enact his tax or when he oversteps his authority? Again.

    My Repub party makes me sick.
