Think you're hanging a lot for -- now get treated pay a buck forty gallon more maybe soon because so nobody calls for -- American members of that body.
Don't raise objections to it let's just say she's also -- and -- Welcome everybody I'm Neil Cavuto and here's a green plan that'll have you seen -- given.
Monetary fund is calling for a dollar forty gas tax that's per gallon right here in the US -- that.
It's all part of a program to help save the environment this is protesters here are getting ready do.
Who wants an overall try to -- Abbas on that Keystone Pipeline -- that.
To save the environment now what is weird is how -- -- -- can be so selective.
Like how they're not quacking about a thousand dead dot sewing up at a Chinese risks.
Little more than a week get to 161000.
Just as dead pigs -- up floating in another Chinese yeah.
Now a far far bigger polluter gets a pass we get a kick it in a silent again so -- time.
Charles Payne -- along was to ban dates and Charlie Gasparino doctor -- -- -- and.
I the IMF there bloated their Eric and they've done more harm to Third World tonight than you can imagine.
And now they're trying to do the same harm to us.
What are they become a charge of the that's gone on -- and they wanna tax a trillion dollar tax to save the environment.
It's just it's all it's Rupp who regressive repressive and it's stupid and it's the -- -- to your point those.
No one has said that I think it's sort of like that might not be a bad idea through you don't think it's good ideas put me down in -- -- -- okay.
Are uploaded a desperate.
I mean Kelly what do you expect that the -- -- that you know the only thing -- -- this sort of local bureaucrats environmental bureaucrats we have in this country of these sort of imported ones from from Europe -- mean they're like twenty times liberal -- when he -- stomach.
We should point out that most of these environmental bureaucrats really don't care about what do people work or not.
They have a sort of straight line view about -- in the in the save the environment and they don't care what economic damage that caused some could you imagine if this actually happened that it.
I mean this is like that -- as you said a regressive tax it hurts poor people which they don't care about -- more than for the rich people it it really is.
A sick disgusting state of affairs that you.
Politicians though in its give them all credit right or left in this country know that is regressive and this is the one tax increase that makes every single disc country.
Voter mad and they will not do is why the president talks about infrastructure spending never talks about raising gas prices and we all know.
These are IMF officials and people from other nations you -- -- there I don't know.
I know but they want to impose their will on us because our gas prices aren't as high as they are in Europe.
I'm -- -- -- -- this is going I can I don't suspect far above but you never know.
I think this could be exactly the bruised and -- -- a good party needs me that this is our worst nightmare.
As free Americans is thoroughly -- devised.
International civil sir how are you scared you know what I what I had the -- -- -- -- ready to go vote go ahead.
Side -- control.
Got paid to control United States of America.
Guys in Belgium are Rome or wherever they are gals -- tell us.
In LA -- -- on what to do with our lives it's all it's -- -- is such a nightmare I have to say Charles -- -- exactly.
-- as -- aggressive and just plain stupid.
But let me borrow more sinister than that a real third a real life international plot to take over the freedom of the United States.
It's a fan it would not be nearly as objectionable if if it did take guests persons not everyone in other words they went after China views saying it need to do the -- -- over world's.
Biggest polluters but it was really kinda.
Signaling the US largely out what do you make of that.
Blacks I don't think they -- about the US and they've been levied a lot of criticism.
On other countries it including up places in sub saharan Africa have a much time -- yeah did not yet a gas tax suggestion we -- I'm not sure we are we read this report mean the report I read Neil was not written by -- much environmentalist hippies it was written by Smart you know economists who -- environment and our bureaucrats in in Europe.
So -- you hear -- word that -- what they're at least traditional pot.
Probably worse yeah Charlie that's yeah that's what kind of the other best line and I still can't answer to god had not had.
-- Charlie and and the rest of the crew here and I know many of the viewers.
We all want to get government out of our lives right.
The the fallacy is that by avoiding these taxes you're sort of keeping government I feel like it's actually the opposite what the IMF report described.
Was the way that government's not just US government governments across the world subsidize energy.
In all kinds of ways on some of them in ways we can't see and what they said is.
If the United States actually.
Made the costs of energy equal to the real cost answer pulling that energy out of the ground and paying for the pollution that goes along with it in the roads and all that you'd have to -- I think I -- just this on rally because I read it I read most of this report as well and this so called cost.
A fossil fuels that the IMF talks about.
Most of this call what is closed as two trillion dollars weighs in estimates on the damage that fossil fuel.
Does to the environment and our clients and those are good estimate there are a bunch of nerds -- it -- choice point I don't smoke dope.
Gore sitting around run and he went on.
-- maybe they should try I don't like that that's that's my that's my point was -- point -- that they go in this would.
Preconceived notions -- and that's how they do these reports I mean they they going to good with a preconceived notion that.
America's evil that we pollute the world and then they go out and they try to prove that through a kind of metrics.
It reminds me a little bit of -- this of this whole thing of that but with the UN civil or human rights commission.
He needs to be populated by guys from Libya and China you know even if it's it's it's pretty absurd.
-- is there -- connects I didn't look to the data on this Charles that you would.
In in countries where the gas tax and and gas price is brutally hard and it is.
Here in this country they drive any -- drive any slower they save anymore.
On because it David it is the case then the DI and that might be making -- case but I don't know -- that's the case.
That's not the case and you know courts in Europe we -- excessively high because there's a lot of other free things that have to be paid for different -- so be careful when you want free stuff and -- They're about the effect but there's a -- appointment I think the only way that this gives government out of our lives is that they finally take all of our money -- fell swoop in on it to be bothered that -- -- -- is and they don't have to be bothered with this anymore but other than that it's ridiculous.
Also have you noticed like a lot of times it in here in -- the Obama administration does is a lot we'll call the coupled with an estimate of how much it saves -- they'll assume that a human life is worth.
Or 500000 I don't know people realize how much more a human life went up from bush to Obama but -- up a whole lot the past do this kind of the book -- -- it.
Two trillion dollars how -- and always people die it.
It's it's just ridiculous Gupta to push -- point to have a preconceived goal and all it does put all of this stuff around -- but they already know what their goal it is hard night.
That money would be used Ben Stein would that money be used -- sensibly.
To make for cleaner earth right whatever they're doing -- cut back.
You know aren't.
And it was hard on it I don't look like as does it do that it will stands still ostensibly that he is of that but we don't have a really weren't we don't really know in detail what did -- a burning car burning gasoline and guards is we.
We don't really know all the cause of global warming -- global pollution.
That that is still.
To many many -- very much of an open question dolls suddenly reminded of the famous saying that we -- to be done economists say.
We -- is there is no signs of that measurement and you get measures on the measured anyway and Edgar and always needs your purpose -- -- allows you have to take over the lives of -- -- Told a joke on not.
Hey does -- get to a point double we just start saying that went bureaucrats it's running for every even if you have a good purpose it's desirable.
It never gets to that desired purpose so.
Be leery of that whatever the the value of what they're talking about here it won't even get to.
Where my being that we might have hit that inflection point Ben -- up demand brought the point up in the beginning with the GOP this being some sort of gift to them.
Not alike has sequestration and the president saying the world is gonna implode that America was gonna collapse overnight -- this spending cut that he actually was the author of went through the notion that somehow our government.
Can't cut 2% of spreading out would destroy the entire country it didn't destroyed entire country and I think people becoming acceptable.
Even markets -- wonders I'd -- -- gas prices because demand has been falling just on its and we've adjusted and without government and the media should really do some work on the IMF I mean you know that I am if it does not have a very good record in helping countries I mean it lends them.
It basically prevents them from from doing pro growth strategies I mean take it from the source this is the IMF and I I like I said they should be -- -- and -- wrote this case.
