Some {R}s are just as bad as the {D}s when it comes to raising taxes. In Ohio Gov Dewine raised gas taxes 8 cents per gallon for infrastructure spending and this is with Ohio having a rainy day fund. He did this with the {R}s controlling both chambers of congress. So Mitt is not alone in his claim that he is a conservative and for lower taxes and less spending but does the opposite. One attraction that fakes like Romney like about this bill is it can raise taxes with out a vote from congress.

^^^^^This. A few years ago, my Republican State Senator co-sponsored with a Democrat, a huge hike in the Gasoline Tax, making it the highest in the nation. Again, to go towards infrastructure spending. A Republican Governor signed the Bill into LAW. My guess, it was the Republicans trying to appease the Democrats for something they wanted. Who knows? The roads and bridges are still falling apart, but the transit workers unions got new contracts, and the transit authorities got more "Green" buses. In the meantime they steal from the fund for more vote buying projects.

Who does this gas tax hurt the most? The working poor, and middle income earner who must drive to work every day, and now must often choose between gasoline or essentials for them and their children. Nice huh?
