GrokTV Special Interview-NH State Senator Andy Sanborn (District 9) – Question 3: RGGI. What happened and why RGGI didn’t get deep sixed?

One of the hot button issues this past legislative session (the last two years here in NH) was to get rid of RGGI – Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative.  Simply put, it is an aggregation of States here in the Northeast that decided to put a broad based carbon tax on anyone using electricity in those states.  Essentially, Watermelon Environmentalists love it that energy costs would be forced to be higher and force people to use less and less, and politicians who love the idea that yet another revenue stream can be used to funnel money from the many to the privileged few (like uber-Lefty Gary Hirshberg’s Stonyfield Farms) follow Obama’s Progressives Not only is it a broad tax, but as the chart shows here, unneeded.
