Conservatives call for a Washington state "carbon tax"

Tonight at Seattle Pacific University a panel will discuss the idea of implementing a "carbon tax" (pollution tax) in Washington state. But the idea doesn't come from a group of left-wing environmentalists, but free-market conservatives (and before you say, "IMPOSSIBLE, by definition this is a RINO operation!" Arthur Laffer, of the "Laffer curve" fame regarding increased revenues from lower tax rates, is on board with the overall idea).

 

Today I'll speak with former congressman Bob Inglis about it. You can find information about the event tonight and the plan here.
