9 Cents Per Gallon: The New Obama Gas Tax
President Obama’s EPA is announcing a new emissions program this morning that will add up to a tax of 9 cents per gallon for the consumer.
“An oil industry study says the proposed rule being unveiled Friday by the administration could increase gasoline prices by 6 cents to 9 cents a gallon.”
It’s clear that President Obama is using his final four years to kotow to the far-left environmentalists that helped elect him. Free from further elections, he’s taxing the middle and working class Americans in a very direct way.
This is a continuing trend for President Obama. Last week, his former campaign apparatus bashed the Keystone XL proposal that would bring over 20,000 jobs and set us on a path to energy independence.
Earlier this week, he announced a fundraiser at the mansion of liberal billionaire Tom Steyer. Steyer is a chief opponent of Keystone and recently led the charge to make Los Angeles coal-free.
President Obama is doing everything he can to cement his liberal legacy. The only thing standing between him and complete control of Washington is our Republican majority in the House. Stand with the NRCC today and ensure that Nancy Pelosi is never Speaker again.
