Rumors of a Gas Tax hike
There are rumors floating around that the Democrats are trying to raise Gas Taxes due to a shortfall in the Highway budget. It was discussed that it would be written into the 2009 budget.
Dont fall for it folks, this is a Howard Dean trial balloon. By using the threat of a tax hike, the ObamaDNCMSM, can put it on the table in exchange for, say, no offshore drilling discussion until after the election. This is classic ObamaDNC tactics; leak a trial balloon and see how folks react. If the response is positive, push it. Unpalatable? Use it as bargaining chip.
