Geraghty on Gas Taxes
STEAL THIS IDEA LIKE IT WAS THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY [04/25 05:44 PM]
Dear Republican lawmakers,
Please take this idea (eliminating the federal tax on gas and diesel for sixty days) and run with it. Take the support of Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey and argue that this is bipartisan and make the Democrats vote for or against temporary tax relief for American drivers. If everyone votes for it, then great. Let the Democrats argue that they thought of it first. All the voters will remember in November is that gas prices dropped 18 cents a gallon (unleaded) and 24 cents a gallon (leaded) and that a GOP Congress and a GOP president got it done.
Just some free advice.
He’s right, right, right. Bring this to the floor along with the permanent end of the death tax.
