Fmr. Rep. Inglis says subsidy phaseout, carbon tax the future of conservative energy narrative

How can conservatives shape the dialogue on energy and climate to reinvigorate the policy debate in Washington? During today's OnPoint, former Rep. Bob Inglis (R-S.C.) explains why he believes a carbon tax and the gradual phaseout of energy subsidies should play key roles in the discussion. Inglis, now the executive director of the Energy and Enterprise Initiative at George Mason University, also weighs in on U.S. EPA's decision last week to reconsider the impact of its new mercury rule on future power plants.
