Waxman & Whitehouse Ask For Carbon Tax Suggestions (Brad Plumer, WaPo)

    Thank you for taking on the carbon issue. I am in favor of a direct revenue return to the public. The fee should be applied upstream on fuels. This keeps the process simple. PLEASE no complicated cap and trade. Price the carbon fee at $15 a ton for starters increased by 5% annually. The entire fee should be returned to the public in monthly or annual payments. The complete program should apply to all states. It would be up to the states to supplement the federal program.
