The question that I always pose to my liberal/socialist/communist acquaintances: How much would be enough? What percentage of my paycheck would make you satisfied enough that you would never demand more? I never get an answer. Never.

Wow. dems in Olympia (WA state) have proposed a 10 cent increase recently.

It will be interesting to see how many people will switch to bicycles and electric cars.

Democrats and taxes, and more taxes, and even more taxes. Followed by massive fraud and waste, requiring still more taxes!

This happens every time the price of gasoline drops. The Democrats figure that you have got used to paying $4.00 for gas, so you won’t notice as much. Funny thing is, when gas goes up, no one proposes cutting the tax. And they say the oil companies are greedy. Sheesh.

My old tagline needs to be aired again, despite the not so nice words....

“Democrats are bastard-coated bastards with bastard filling.”

If I remember correctly, rising gas prices was one of the things that triggered the mortgage crisis. This is because many consumers had the dilemma of either paying their mortgage, or paying more to have some gas their tank, some consumers relucatantly choosing to gas up instead of paying the mortgage.

This unmitigatedly smug, little dick is Earl Blumenauer. I am ashamed to admit that when I lived in Portland OR, he was my congressman. He hardly reaches the description "man", much less congressman.

He's the posterboy for modern, effeminate America and embodies all that is banal, cowardly and traitorous about the Left in this country.

However, I don't hope that someone defecates in his mouth.

Only a third of current federal gasoline taxes make it back to the roads and bridges ?

The rest gets lost in DC and their pet projects.

Just when the economy is struggling to stay afloat the government throws them a lead life saver.

Pennsylvania passed and signed a law last week that could increase the price of a gallon of gasoline up to 28 cents over the next three year.

I bet the stations on the Ohio side of the border are licking their chops and the ones on the Pa side are looking to sell out.

"Every credible independent report indicates that we are not meeting the demands of our stressed and decaying infrastructure system – roads, bridges and transit," Blumenauer said

Blumenauer should ask Obama why the nation's infrastructure never got rebuilt with the $900 billion Stimulus as he promised.

Remember how Obama needed the giant slush fund for his "Shovel Ready" projects? He was gouing to rebuild bridges, highways, airports, the power grid.

But now what does the nation have to show for that $900 billion?

NOTHING !!!

Obama gave it to his pals, used it for wealth redistribution and let people steal it.

Anyone in congress and the senate who voted for the Stimulus should be charged with Treason, along with Obama and Biden.

I looked up his district. The closest election he’s had since 1996 was a 63/26 win. And this is a district that is 80% white.

The guy is “bulletproof” electorally. I thought only all black urban districts voted like that...you learn something every day.

Honestly, I expected them to want 50 cents/gal increase, and I half expected them to throw on another dollar per pack tax on cigarettes. Maybe a 20cent tax on Cola Drinks.

You asked “how much would be enough”?

A think tank in dc did a study of how much money they could bring in if they taxed everyone at 100%.
Then they projected the revenues out for the next 10 years.
They didn’t comprehend that no one would work after year 1.

These people have some serious mental roadblocks.
