The New Green Deal being pushed by AOC would raise the price of gas almost immediately to $7 a gallon and that will increase every single year.
Former California GOP Assemblyman Chuck DeVore said that the NGD is just an indirect tax on gasoline because the Democrats are afraid to make it a direct tax, but I think people are smart enough to see this for what it is.
And it could get worse if they decide to accept the United Nations recommendation of $49 dollars a gallon for gas. And remember, those numbers are nothing compared to what you will pay to heat and cool your home, not to mention the runaway inflation.
“I think it’s very important for your viewers to understand that in France they pay a little over $7 a gallon for gasoline and almost half of that are taxes,” DeVore said on “Fox & Friends” Monday. “This was a climate change tax of about 25 cents a gallon for gasoline. About 10 cents for diesel.” (RELATED: Chuck Schumer Demands Climate Concessions From Trump For Infrastructure Spending)
“I think that in America though with this Green New Deal you’re going to see indirect taxation,” he continued. “In other words more subsidies, more taxes, more mandates and regulations.”
Host Steve Doocy said the 12-year United Nations climate report will call for a carbon tax of $5,500 per ton which would equal a cost of $49 per gallon of gasoline.
“That’s why you are seeing places like France and Belgium and Britain, and of course here in America, people wanting to protect their national sovereignty,” DeVore replied. “People are getting tired of international bodies that aren’t directly accountable to voters telling them what they need to do. And that 49 bucks a gallon, that’s 100 times what we currently pay in taxes on average in America.”
