The US Chamber of Commerce launched this ad against the global warming legislation winding its way through Congress. It's hilarious, and dumb, and makes no sense. The scenario that consumers would have to jog to work is implausible, and doesn't really fear-monger the way that I would expect from a real right-wing campaign.
Therefore, along with other options, we are going to have to consider an increase in the federal gasoline user fee. This could take the form of a straightforward increase in a fee that hasn't been raised in 14 years or it may be in the form of a carbon tax designed to address global warming-as long as the proceeds are dedicated to transportation.
The US Chamber of Commerce has historically supported consumption taxes, and they would like nothing better than to raise energy costs on consumers and reduce them on their right-wing corporate members while dedicating the revenue to their interests.
But this ad isn't serious. It isn't intended to do anything except demonstrate to insiders that business is willing to spend lots of money to ensure that climate change legislation is tilted towards business interests.
