Zinke Statement on Obama’s Oil Tax

CONGRESS – February 8, 2016 – (RealEstateRama) — Montana Congressman Ryan Zinke released the following statement on the Obama administration’s proposal to place a $10 tax on every barrel of oil to pay for green energy projects:

“Too many Montana families are living on the brink trying to figure out how to pay for groceries, rent, heat and gas – the President’s new $10 oil tax will hurt them the most,” said Rep. Zinke. “The President continues to throw money to his liberal green energy donor to keep them afloat, while punishing Montana’s natural resources and the good-paying jobs they support. Here’s an idea: Let’s keep hard working Montanans afloat. Rather than taxing families and jobs to death, let’s work together to figure out how to grow the economy, become energy independent, and lift our entire nation up. That’s what all of the above energy policies will do, and that’s what I’m fighting for in Congress.”
