Gas is closing in on $1 a gallon. Good news right? Not if you are a Democrat it isn't. Since you are beholden to the enviro-nazi movement you have different priorities than everyone else. First you did all you could to stop new drilling. That didn't work as oil prices fell naturally.
But you are hell bent on destroying American culture to fight "global warming" that you are now going to tax gas back to $4 a gallon. Why is the solution to every problem in a Democrat's mind higher taxes? Why can't it ever be reduced spending?
Transportation is becoming like public education. Every year the union goons representing "educators" demand more money. Every year they get it. And every year the system gets worse and test scores fall. Nobody in the teacher union racket is ever held accountable, and they come back for even more money the next year. Now traffic is the same way. Every year, teamsters demand more money to reduce traffic congestion. They get the billions of dollars, and yet the next year there is an urgent need for even more money.
And the most fucked up part is this reasoning for higher taxes;
The dilemma for Congress is that highway and transit programs are dependent for revenue on fuel taxes that are not sustainable. Many Americans are driving less and switching to more fuel-efficient cars and trucks, and a shift to new fuels and technologies like plug-in hybrid electric cars will further erode gasoline sales.
So after beating us over the head to drive more fuel efficient cars and drive less, the Democrats are now complaining that we are.....driving less and driving more fuel efficient cars? It is all a sham. No matter what we do, Democrats will tax us more. Drive more, drive less, drive a Prius, drive an Escalade. Doesn't matter. The one and only goal of Obama and his fellow travelers in Congress is always more taxation.
But since Americans are slowly becoming the stupidest people on earth, they probably won't notice. At least they are getting change....lots and lots of change.
