|'You want a gas increase? I don't drive sure'. Total meltdown towards conservatives inititives. But wasn't the Democrats the party of taxes and spend, spend, ..another lie it was the lier. fooling some.|
President Trump endorsed a 25-cent gas tax hike to pay for infrastructure at a White House meeting this morning with senior administration officials and members of Congress from both parties, according to two sources with direct knowledge. Trump also said he was open to other ways to pay for infrastructure, according to a source with direct knowledge.
Reality check: Trump’s gas tax idea appears dead on arrival. Republicans aren’t about to hike taxes for the Trump voters driving their pickup trucks to work every day. It’s a regressive tax and in Republicans’ minds would undo some of working and middle-class tax cuts they just passed.
