Big Government Will Raise The Gas Tax And Infrastructure Will Keep Crumbling

gas-2Epic Times

American politicians are all revved up for a gas tax hike — prices are low and Washington wants part of the action while consumers are less likely to notice the increase.

A twelve cent gas tax is being proposed. But here’s the problem: each penny increase in the gas tax takes about $1 billion from the wallets of drivers. So that’s $12 billion out of our wallets and into the coffers of the government.  

And what about the crumbling infrastructure argument? Don’t our freeways need rebuilding? Sure, but do you think for a second that much money will actually go towards doing that after political cronies and corrupt contractors take their cut? Not likely.

“I guarantee you that we will get higher taxes on gas and we will get less quality infrastructure,” says talk show host Jerry Doyle. “And we will end up with greater debt with less accountability.”

  1. I saw this coming when the price of gas started dropping. I knew it was just a matter of time. If the price of gas goes up, congress will repeal the additional gas tax, wouldn’t they???
