Does James Ehlers Support His Party's Carbon Tax?
As Liberals Double-Down Their Support, Where Does The Presumptive Democratic Nominee Stand
Berlin, VT - In the wake of liberal activists reigniting their push for a carbon tax, which could add as much as $1 more per gallon of gas, 2018 presumptive Democratic nominee for Governor James Ehlers is notably silent. In response to the unusual silence from the Ehlers campaign, Jeff Bartley, Executive Director of the Vermont Republican Party issued the following statement:
“This silence is unusual for Ehlers, since in the past he has been all-too-eager to jump on wild, unpractical tax policies including an additional 6% payroll tax, additional excise taxes on fishing hooks, cheese, and other traditional Vermont products. Why so silent, Mr. Ehlers?
“It's time to come clean and tell Vermonters where you stand on your party’s carbon tax proposal. Do you support adding $1 per gallon of gas to overtaxed Vermonters?”
