President Obama just proposed adding an extra $10 tax on every barrel of oil America produces—hurting poor Americans the most. Here's my response: It's dead on arrival in Congress.

“Obama’s $10 tax proposal would cost motorists”

This USA TODAY headline says it all. President Obama is proposing another massive energy tax and it would cost you.

There are two things you need to know about this tax.

1.    It would kill good-paying jobs.

2.    It would raise gas prices by an average of 24 cents per gallon.

A top White House official even said, “We recognize that oil companies will likely pass on some of these costs.”


That’s right: they admit this tax would cause more pain at the pump. 


The good news is this tax is dead on arrival in the people’s House. We’re not going to let President Obama make hardworking Americans pay for his radical climate agenda.
