Gas Tax

A few questions:
  • Do you consider yourself a climate change activist?
  • Do you think a government lifeline to the Big 2.5 automobile manufacturers is a good idea?
  • Do you think domestic infrastructure spending should have a steady funding source?
  • Do you think our country should wean itself from foreign suppliers of oil?
  • Do you think our country should develop non-fossil fuel sources of energy?
  • Do you think our government has even a minimal role to play in developing non-fossil fuel sources of energy?
Answering yes to any one of those questions means you support, or at least should support, increasing the federal tax on retail purchase of gasoline.

The author of that article is 100% correct. In the long run, high gas prices would be beneficial to America for all the reasons listed.

Unfortunately, I don't think there is a politician in Washington that has the balls to support this type of intiative. It's too easy for the media or their political opponents to turn this into a "he voted for high gas prices". Joe average American won't understand the long-term benefits, only the short term cost.
