Comes as Biden has already killed hundreds of thousands of jobs after halting Keystone XL pipeline.
Joe Biden’s commerce secretary nominee Gina Raimondo revealed that she’s receptive to raising taxes on the poorest Americans to help fund the left’s radical climate agenda.
During the confirmation hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) asked how Raimondo, the current Democrat Rhode Island governor, felt about a Democrat proposal to impose a gas tax on Americans, including low-income families.
“As Governor, I’m deeply in touch with how much increasing bills affect the average American family,” she began. “Having said that, we do need to, um, meet the climate change challenge and we need funds for improved infrastructure.”
“Better roads, safer bridges, and uh, which also creates jobs. So I would look to balance those interests and work as a piece of the president’s team,” she added.
Once again, it looks as if Biden is well on his way to breaking another campaign promise, because he repeatedly assured Americans in 2020 that only individuals making over $400,000 would see any new taxes.
“I will raise taxes for anybody making over $400,000…No new taxes [for people making less than $400,000], there would be no need for [any],” Biden said.
Despite these alarming remarks, Republicans won’t likely put up any resistance to her confirmation, as they’ve already voted overwhelmingly with Democrats to confirm most of his Cabinet.
