June 26, 2009

As Congress prepares to vote on cap-and-trade, the Tax Foundation is releasing a new video on YouTube created by the popular video parody artist Remy. The video presents a humorous take on Uncle Sam’s very serious attempts to “go green.”

In addition, the Tax Foundation Working Paper “Who Pays for Climate Policy? New Estimates of the Household Burden and Economic Impact of a U.S. Cap-and-Trade System” provides an in-depth explanation of the topic.
