Inhofe Comment on Waxman-Markey Climate Tax Bill

 

 

 

WASHINGTON, DC – Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member on the Environment and Public Works Committee, today commented on the Waxman-Markey climate tax bill.  

 

“I look forward to a full, open and honest debate over the 600-plus page Waxman-Markey climate tax bill,” Senator Inhofe said.  “It appears that this legislation is yet another version of the same story: a job-killing tax increase on American consumers that jeopardizes America’s energy security, while doing nothing to address climate change.   In short, it’s all economic pain for no climate gain.”
