Senator Dodd calls for a Corporate Carbon Tax
With gas prices in the nation at an all time high, Democratic Presidential candidate Senator Chris Dodd issued the following statement.
"For the sake of both our economy and our national security, we must break our addiction to Middle East oil by investing in new, clean and reliable fuels we can cultivate right here using the ingenuity of the American worker.
"This is not the time for half-measures and dancing around the edges. We need leadership that will act with honesty and conviction to do what needs to be done to meet this challenge.
"By dramatically increasing fuel standards and enacting a Corporate Carbon Tax that would invest in alternative energy, the Dodd Energy Plan would break our addiction to Middle East oil and help make energy more affordable for our families."
