H.Con.Res. 119, introduced by Majority Whip Steve Scalise and Rep. David McKinley, sends a clear message to American Taxpayers that a Republican led Congress will continue to put America first in its energy policy and strongly oppose any attempt to implement the disastrous carbon tax.

ATR urges a YES vote on H.Con.Res. 119

Tomorrow, the House of Representatives will vote on H.Con.Res. 119 – Expressing the sense of Congress that a carbon tax would be detrimental to the United States economy. All Republican members of Congress should vote YES on this important resolution expressing opposition to a carbon tax. This same resolution passed in 2016 without a single Republican vote against it. This resolution deserves strong affirmation again in 2018.

“The carbon tax is a plan designed to harm American manufacturers, raise prices for every single American consumer, and prop up uncompetitive expensive sources of energy like solar and wind,” said Paul Blair, the Director of Strategic Initiatives at Americans for Tax Reform. “Killing a carbon tax dead in its tracks isn’t only good policy, it’s a basic IQ test for modern day conservatives.”

As the 2018 midterm elections approach, American voters deserve to know where their elected Representatives stand on an energy tax that would raise the cost of getting to work, heating their homes and nearly all consumer goods they purchase.

By voting YES on H.Con.Res. 119 Republican members of Congress have an opportunity to draw a contrast between the Republican agenda and the radical left’s attempt to increase taxes and the cost of energy for all American consumers.
