Following the criminal plot by the IMF, the EU and the European Central Bank to steal billions from depositors in Cyprus, the banksters have hatched a new plan to steal trillions, level the economic playing field and force millions into grinding poverty.
In order to save the earth and pay for social programs supposedly designed to help the victims of our alleged carbon crimes, the IMF says we need to pay an extra $1.40 per gallon in taxes.
“The time has come for subsidy reform and carbon taxation,” declared the IMF’s deputy director, David Lipton, last week. “The IMF will draw attention to the issue and help those who want to go forward.”
The IMF says impoverishing more people through burdensome taxation will reduce traffic jams and accidents by discouraging driving.
Gas in the U.S. is currently between $3.26 and $4.00 per gallon and the proposed IMF tax, if adopted, would inflict further damage on the economy.
“Good grief!” exclaimed Rep. Fred Upton, a Michigan Republican who chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee. “Higher gas prices hit those who can least afford it the most as American families are forced to pay a larger percentage of their income on higher energy prices.
“Drivers across the country are already struggling to pay up to $4.00 a gallon for gas, and further price increases at the pump could be devastating to low and middle-class families and disastrous to our economic recovery. Instead of finding way to make gas more expensive, our focus needs to be on finding solutions to keep energy prices affordable.”
