(NewsBusters) – Bill Maher’s HBO program might be on hiatus, but that doesn’t stop the Obama-supporter from making inflammatory remarks about other Americans.
At his blog Friday, Maher wrote that the President should use the current budget crisis to implement a carbon tax as a “personal f–k you to the Koch brothers”:
Since we’re looking for new revenue streams that aren’t income taxes, Obama should use this budget crisis — if you can call it that — to do something about global warming with a carbon tax. This may be his last and only chance to do something big since cap and trade didn’t work. And it would be just desserts for the oil and coal industries that went all in for Mitt Romney, a nice little personal f–k you to the Koch brothers.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: any time Maher wants to debate the theory of anthropogenic global warming, I’d be more than happy to oblige him.
