Walker Pledges Fealty To King Koch, Coal

More right-wing wordsmithing and policy-making; Walker promises to stand with the fossil fuel polluters:

This pledge is called the “No Climate Tax Pledge,” but it might as well be called the “Koch Brothers Protection Pledge,” since it was devised by a group co-founded and backed by the billionaire brothers whose companies, according to the EPA, emitted over 24 million tons of carbon dioxide in 2011. 
Signers of the pledge, now numbering 411, promise to "oppose any legislation relating to climate change that includes a net increase in government revenue” — in other words, no legislation on climate change without an equivalent amount of tax cuts.

Not that they'll acknowledge it, but most climate tax proposals are designed to be revenue neutral.
