How Much Of Your Money Have Democrats Pledged To Fight Hotcoldwetdry?

It’s easy to Do Something about ‘climate change’ when you’re spending Other People’s money

Whatever the number is, expect it to be at least tripled, and they’ll be paying back their donors

Climate change — or, more precisely, fighting climate change — has quickly become one of the top priorities among Democratic voters. Increasingly dire warnings about the devastating effects of climate change, as well as the sweeping Green New Deal proposed this year in Congress, have helped the topic gain traction among voters and politicians alike.

It may be important to the Democrat base, but, of course, not enough for them to give up their own use of fossil fuels and make their lives carbon neutral, nor spend their own money.

A carbon tax is a tax levied on polluters — for example, a power plant burning fossil fuels. The goal is to cut emissions by forcing businesses to pay a price for polluting. Many economists back the idea, but it could be difficult to sell politically, as it could mean higher prices for Americans on things such as gasoline and heating.

Most are in favor of it. Some are “not opposed” to nuclear energy, some are against.

Most candidates who have climate plans list target dates for getting the U.S. to net-zero carbon emissions. They differ on the dates when they believe it is possible to get there. Many candidates have set 2050 as a target. That is when the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has said that the world will have to get to net zero to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

All but Bloomberg and Gabbard are for this, yet, are taking quite a few fossil fueled trips. Because this is only for The Little People, not your political masters.

    Drudge reported that 99% of major American corporations pay no Federal tax
    How about it if the Dems made them pay for it ?
    Why hasn’t your trumpet done something about that ?

    • formwiz says:

      Drudge sold out and it’s just another Lefty rag.

      How about it if you shut your mouth?

      The Demos aren’t going to tax major american businesses because too many Demos get their funding from them.

      Why hasn’t your trumpet done something about getting the Demos to cut spending and entitlements?

        John, corporations don’t pay taxes their shareholders do and their customers do. Or do you not understand business at all?

    • gitarcarver says:

      Have you ever paid even one cent more in taxes than you are required John?

      Ooops! Sorry….living in your mom’s basement means you don’t pay taxes – even on the pizza rolls she buys for you.

      What benefits people and the economy more, John? Companies investing, growing, and creating jobs or the government taxing people for more handouts?

      The fact is that you hate companies. After all, all you have is hate.

        All gitarcarver has is hate.

        Why not eliminate all corporate taxes, estate taxes, progressive taxes?

        Eliminate all fed gov’t except defense and dun every American for 1/300,000,000 of the fed budget.

        1,500,000,000,000/ 300,000,000 = $5,000 each

        Bill and Melinda would owe $10,000. A truck driver supporting a family of 5 would owe $25,000.

        Sounds like a conservative paradise.

          Jeff,
          Of course we could be like you obtaining your education and business start up from grants that are paid with our taxes.

        • formwiz says:

          git just asked you a simple question. You go on some rant to change the subject, so we have to presume you have a reason for ducking the question.

          Why not eliminate all corporate taxes, estate taxes, progressive taxes?

          Why not? All they do is give Congress more money to waste.

          Eliminate all fed gov’t except defense and dun every American for 1/300,000,000 of the fed budget.

          No, stick to the duties outlined in the Constitution, eliminate the entitlements, dun every Leftist his/her/its net worth, and the budget will be balanced in a couple of years.

          Now that’s a Conservative paradise.

          You are free not to deduct any corporate taxes your company is eligible for.

          We both know you won’t do that.

          You won’t do what you demand of others.

          That’s typical of you.

          First you complain that there should not be drug patents, but won’t vacate the patents you own. You say that you aren’t taxed enough and should pay more, but you don’t. Now you don’t want companies to take deductions, but you won’t demand or act on that idea in your own company.

          I guess it is because you have come to the point where the left hates so much, they can’t even follow through with their own ideas.

          The left only has hate.

            Why do you attack others rather than discuss issues?

          • gitarcarver says:

            Obviously, I know more about them than you. You don’t want patents on drugs yet you won’t vacate your patents or resign from a company that makes money off those patents.

            Why do you attack others rather than discuss issues?

            This is rich coming from you.

            You hate so much that you don’t even realize the hatred you spew forth.

            All the left has is hate.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            The Git only has hate, a hate that grows daily.

            He complains about taxes, yet relies on the gov’t for his very existence.

            That’s typical of the hateful right. They propose to eliminate Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and disability payments but refuse to give it up themselves. They won’t do what they demand of others!

            I don’t complain that there should not be drug patents, but I do argue that we could find a better way to finance drug development. The current system adds hundreds of billions to the cost of prescription drugs in the US – money redistributed from the working classes to the already wealthy. We assume you agree that inventors should be rewarded for their inventions – the argument is to determine how much – and the length of patent life (a gov’t enforced monopoly – no free market!) is determined by law. Inventors don’t determine how long a patent grants exclusivity, the government does. Do you really want inventors to stop inventing??

            Do you know the difference between a patent owner and an inventor? Tech patent owners are typically corporations, e.g., Pfizer, Apple, Microsoft,
            Merck, Bayer, Facebook, Johnson and Johnson, and also many universities. Most of the financial rewards from a patent goes to owner – usually an organization that develops the patent into a product. Large corporations typically finance the development through shareholders, while smaller corporations typically finance through investors, e.g., VCs.

            You advocate that inventors not patent their inventions so that society may reap the benefits at little cost (socialism), contrary to the capitalistic (not to mention, Constitutional) notion that rewarding inventors drives technological innovation.

            Article 1, Section 8

            The Congress shall have power:

            To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries;

            Do you think inventors have lobbied Congress to regularly extend patent lives or do you think it’s the corporate owners? Much of the hullaballoo over global trade pacts is to tighten US patents against infringement.

            Here’s a primer on pharmaceutical patents.

            But all The Git has is hate.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Like his savior, The Don of Trump, The Git purports to have the bestest of everything – the bestest brain, the bestest knowledge of all things!

            All The Git has is hate.

    • david7134 says:

      John,
      Admit you are as stupid as jeff. Then get a book on the tax code and find out that most corporations legally do not make taxable income. Don’t like it, change the law.

    A little something to make you smile.

    Commie News Net did a poll and found the Trump economy the best in 20 years.

    More fun stuff:

    Mrs. Pelosi’s Early Christmas Gift?

    Overall Likely Voter @POTUS approval – 50%

    Democratic Likely Voter approval of @POTUS – 22%

    Black Likely Voter approval of @POTUS – 34%

    Other non-white approval of @POTUS – 45%

    Strongly approve/disapprove index – even

    Looks like he’s tripled the number of Hildabeast voters he had just a couple of months ago.

    No wonder Jeffery wants to change the subject. Any subject.

    <i.You keep repeating that lie, daveed.

    gitarcarver only has hate.

    notice the same old rimshots. Nothing of value or originality.

    gitarcarver also is ignorant regarding patents.

    All right then, illuminate us. But just saying he’s ignorant means nothing. Right now it sounds like git has more specifics than you.

    Why do you attack others rather than discuss issues?

    Why do you always try to change the subject when cornered? If you have the truth, you should be able to state it.

    Unless you really don’t.
