With the price of gasoline skyrocketing you’d think that Washington would be doing everything it could to ease the price and the impact on your wallet. Well, you’d be wrong.
Believe it or not, Harry Reid’s tax-and-spend gaggle in the Senate are responding to soaring gas prices by, you guessed it, trying to raise taxes on oil and gas companies. Of course, higher taxes mean higher prices; it’s just common sense.
The bill is S. 2204, offered by Senator Menendez from New Jersey. Not only does it seek to jack up taxes on oil and gas when we can least afford it, but it also handpicks a range of so-called green technologies for special tax breaks. This bill tries to prop them all up: electric cars, cellulosic biofuels, wind, ethanol blender pumps, and on and on.
Take action today and tell your senators not to make gas even more expensive.
