Bush Calls for Phase-Out of Energy Tax Credits in Video

“We should phase out, through tax reform, the tax credits for wind, for solar, for the oil and gas sector, for all this stuff,” Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush says in video taken after town hall meeting.

  • “Best way” is to “let markets decide this,” Bush says in Manchester, N.H.
  • Tax reform should “lower the rate as far as you can, and eliminate as many of these subsidies,” Bush says
  • Video was posted by environmental group 350 Action
  • NOTE: Oil tycoons Richard Kinder, Ray Lee Hunt, Jeffery Hildebrand, Trevor Rees-Jones, and T. Boone Pickens all donated to Bush’s campaign, according to disclosures
