    Raise gas tax: The report would raise the federal gas tax by 15 cents a gallon starting in 2013. It would dedicate the extra revenue to fund transportation and limit spending on projects to whatever has been collected by the increased tax that year.

    If things keep going the way they are only people with 250 K a year will be able to fill up.
    So I guess that will be another promise kept.

    Maybe the dickweed could stop the skimming of upwards of 20% of fuel taxes going to stupid money-sucking urban mass transit programs.

    It may be 18 cents now, but this would make it 33 cents a gallon.

    They're looking at a Vehical Miles Tax instead.

    All those PRIUS and VOLT owners aren't paying THEIR FAIR SHARE.
