Congress considers raising pump tax

Congress: Gas tax holiday? Ha! Let them pay MORE tax!
Unbelievable. As the article states, gas tax, including all federal, state and local taxes amounts to about 47 cents a gallon.  With the rapid price increase over the last couple of years, consumption is down, so tax revenues are down, and all those pet projects are running low on cash. The solution?  Raise taxes by as much as another 40 cents!
These people are NUTS!!
