Rand Paul talked to CNN’s Jake Tapper about Trump schlonging the Paris Global Warming Accord today, and he ripped it apart piece by piece with rhetorical skill and logical expertise.
Here’s some of it from Real Clear Politics:
RAND PAUL: Well first you wouldn’t lose 6 million American jobs.
One of the reasons President Trump was elected is he promised to defend American workers and American jobs. There are estimates that this agreement, which is unfair, and punishes America… that we would lose 6 and a half million jobs, while countries like India and Iran — We would have to pay them to reduce their carbon emissions.
I can’t imagine a worse agreement than this thing for the American worker…
[The 6.5 million jobs] are in the energy industry… because of excessive regulation.
So if America has to reduce her Carbon footprint by 20%, but China doesn’t have to reduce their at all, how could that possibly be fair? Who in their right minds would sign something that says China doesn’t have to do anything.
Ah, this is why so many of us thought he should have been a great presidential candidate, if Americans had cared about reason and logic last year….
