AAF on PROVE IT Act: “Republicans Should Know Better”

January 18th, 2024

Advancing American Freedom issued the following statement after the PROVE IT Act advanced through the Senate committee with a handful of GOP support.

“The PROVE IT Act is nothing more than a backdoor attempt to impose a carbon tax on the American people, while expanding the powers of the administrative state,” said AAF Executive Director Paul Teller. “It’s proven that taxes on imported goods will be paid for by the American people. This type of legislation is commonplace for Democrats, but Republicans should know better than to support a carbon tax.”
