Democratic Senators Agree on Carbon Tax on Imports from High-polluting Countries

A carbon tax that will be imposed on imports from polluting countries was agreed to be added to the $3.5 trillion budget plan, Fox News informed.

According to Democratic Senator Ed Markey, while the bill will assert the US leadership on the climate crisis by undertaking certain measures, the country won’t be “Uncle Sucker” and allow other countries, headed by China, to take advantage of this plan.

He also stated that there is a lot of people that support this idea.

Some members of the Democratic party harshly criticized former President Donald Trump in the past for using the tariffs against China to even out the economic playfield.
