House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman John Dingell (D-Mich.) will propose a new carbon tax that would increase the gasoline tax by 50 cents, the lawmaker said in an interview on C-SPAN's Newsmakers airing Sunday.

In the interview, Dingell acknowledged that voters may not be willing to bear the cost of limiting greenhouse gas emissions, and that he would propose the new tax just to sort of see how people really feel about this.

I sincerely doubt that the American people are willing to pay what this is really going to cost them, Dingell said in the interview.
