Rep. Poe Says No to Energy Tax

The new cap-and-trade tax will destroy thousands of Texas jobs, and the Congressional Budget Office says that the tax on energy won't even help the climate. The immediate solution right in front of us is expanding our own oil and gas production while we develop new sources of energy. This will create jobs, keep money in America, and make us less dependent on foreign oil. I will only support practical legislation that takes advantage of our domestic energy resources without tax increases on the American consumer.
