I’m glad to see nearly everyone is opposed to this gas tax holiday. Even better is that most people see it as a completely transparent attempt, especially on Clinton’s side, as attempting to court votes.
While we’re at it, why not have an income tax holiday for a few weeks in the summer? That would help a lot more than just repealing that silly old 18.4 cents per gallon tax. We need a real tax holiday, people! Sure, the government doesn’t need that money. They can just borrow it any have someone else pay for it later. It’s that thinking that has balloned our deficit to $9,361,427,723,127.68 (as of 9 May 2008 at 02:08:35 AM GMT) or over $30,000 per person.
Maybe we should start thinking about how we’re going to start paying that down?
