The UN Wants to Tax Individuals

United Nations delegates met this year in Doha, Qatar, where they cooked up a plan to impose a new kind of tax on individual Americans to create a gigantic flow of money for the bureaucrats to redistribute. They ignore our U.S. Constitution, which specifies that "all bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives." The greedy globalist UN bureaucrats have been conniving for about 20 years to bypass our Constitution and Congress, and tax individual Americans. They now think they have devised a formula to do this. Their vehicle for this travesty is the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. UN convention delegates dream they can force the United States to transform the economic structure of the world by using a new global treaty based on global warming fears (even though the earth has not warmed for the past 16 years).

The executive secretary of this new UN agency, Christiana Figueres, plans to call special UN "meetings and workshops" to prepare the new document. Then UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon will "convene leaders to mobilize the political will to ensure that the 2015 deadline is met" to start this global tax. This new UN document will cap greenhouse gases, and replace our use of fossil fuels with renewable energy sources such as solar and wind. Government will be expected to subsidize green energy because evidence proves that alternate energy sources are far more expensive and cannot compete in the marketplace.

The UN delegates in Doha are salivating at the thought of building this to be a $100-billion-a-year fund by imposing a global tax on our carbon dioxide emissions, international monetary transactions, international shipping, and airline travel.
