Portland Warmists Look To Push A Sort-Of Carbon Tax On Other People

Isn’t interesting how members of the Cult of Climastrology always want to create a tax for Other People? That they always seem to exclude themselves…well, directly, of course, because these same taxes will end up hitting everyone negatively

(KOIN6)  A coalition led by environmental groups filed an initiative petition with the city of Portland on Jan. 18 to enact a sales tax on large retailers to fund projects that will decrease carbon emissions.

They call their measure the Portland Climate Action Community Benefits Initiative 2018 and are shooting for the November city ballot. The chief petitioner is Adriana Voss-Andreae, chairwoman of 350PDX, an affiliate of an international group working to avert dramatic climate change.

The measure aims to enact a new sales tax of 1 percent on retailers with more than $1 billion in gross revenues and more than $500,000 in Portland revenues. Retailers selling basic groceries, medicines and health care services are exempted.

Right there, it would see a lawsuit because it unfairly taxes certain businesses over others, but, regardless, it would drive those businesses out of Portland proper. For those who can’t, they’ll simply pass that 1% on to customers.

Of course, they’re going to play the redistribution game with Other People’s money

Money collected would be deposited into a Portland Climate Action Community Benefit Fund, which would be disbursed for renewable energy and energy efficiency projects, with a particular focus on projects that benefit low-income people and communities of color.

Portland is totally diverse, you know. Just 6.6% of the population is Black. 6.8 is Hispanic/Latino. Do these Leftist Warmists think that all Blacks and Latinos are poor? Pretty racist attitude, wouldn’t you say?

    Progressives/leftists/liberals are just modern day communists that have rebranded.

    Any one with an iota of historical knowledge should see them for what they are and there should be mass public outrage and shunning of them and their shitty ideology, just like how they try to, often falsely, label their opponents as Nazis.

    One more increment toward successful progressive government.

    See Venezuela for the inevitable outcome.
