Fee on carbon-based fuels could help energy issue

Now that cap-and-trade is dead, how do we move toward energy independence and a cleaner environment?

Republicans want to avoid increasing taxes on the American people and growing the size of government. There is a solution that avoids both of these. A fee on carbon-based fuels would make clean energy more competitive and send a price signal that would spur investment in green technology.

The money would be rebated to the public to mitigate rising energy bills. This "fee-and-dividend" approach will work without more government bureaucracy to create green jobs and help drive our economy for decades. Learn more at MillionLetterMarch.org.
