Re: Al Gore's Global Warming Speech at NYU Today -- A Must Read!
"For the last fourteen years, I have advocated the elimination of all payroll taxes including those for social security and unemployment compensation and the replacement of that revenue in the form of pollution taxes principally on CO2. The overall level of taxation would remain exactly the same. It would be, in other words, a revenue neutral tax swap. But, instead of discouraging businesses from hiring more employees, it would discourage business from producing more pollution."
genious! What a great idea!
