Howard Dean: Low-Income People Hurt by Cap-and-Tax Will Recoup Cost with Less Asthma Emergency Room Visits
CNBC contributor claims the low-ball figure of $40 a year lost by low-income households due to cap-and-trade will be made up with lower medical costs.
“I believe that for the $40 a year that the lowest income people pay in extra taxes or extra energy costs, they will more than recoup that having their kids spend less time in the emergency rooms because of asthma attacks,” Dean said. “This is a problem we have to deal with and I think the President has done the right thing.”
