The Power Hour | What a Carbon Tariff Means for You

The Power Hour is a weekly podcast that discusses the most interesting energy and environmental policy issues of the day with top national experts. In this episode, Jack and Mike McKenna, President of MWR Strategies and Heritage Foundation Visiting Fellow discuss a recently introduced bill that would establish a tariff, or should we say tax, on imported items. The bill’s sponsors insist the tariff is not a tax but Mike and Jack’s analysis suggests otherwise. But the problem with the carbon tariff is not just that it will increase prices for American families and businesses, it establishes an important foundation on which more carbon dioxide-based regulation will surely be built. If you want to know why carbon tariffs are really just a tax by another name, and how they could impact the US economy for years to come, you will want to check this one out. Are we right? Are we wrong? Let us know what you think at thepowerhour@heritage.org!
