Re: "If Congress really cares about job creation . . . , it should read REMI’s report closely and enact this type of carbon tax to obviate the need for the EPA’s proposed regulations."

Actually, if Congress really cared about jobs -- it's realize there's no real need, either for a carbon tax, or to obviate any phony "need" for EPA regulations.

And, there is, of course, no evidence, whatever, that a new, overarching tax on everything -- which is what a carbon tax would be -- would have the slightest positive effect on anything or anyone, other than proliferating and enabling free-spending Washington bureaucrats.

This whole tax-ourslves-into-prosperity scam is nothing more than disingenuous liberal hype, designed to buy votes and ease dissent along the Democrats' unruly left wing.

Nor should we expect the slightest actual effect on humanity's cumulative carbon footprint, as a result.

And, citing REMI as a credible source is particularly telling -- it was co-founded and heavily influenced by admitted Communist [and Nobel Prize winner, which makes him doubly suspect] Lawrence Klein.

REMI's reports are credible only to extremely credulous leftists.
