Michigan is gonna take Louisiana's place as the worst place to do business if they're not careful. This, in spite of the "Jeff Daniels initiative".

He makes it sound like people just WANT to pay alot for gas. We HAVE to pay for gas moron. If I rode my bike it'd take me all day.

That's such a stupid idea. He just wants poorer people off the highway.

First of all, he proposed this back in July of 2007; secondly, as part of this proposal he said: "I sincerely doubt that the American people are willing to pay what this is really going to cost them." He was simply trying to spur debate in his district about the oncoming reality of an energy crisis. But hey, it's Fox News...why not pull out a year-old proposal by a Democrat while gas prices are hitting record highs now?

Here's a link to the July 2007 article.

I am so freaking mad.
Who in the hell does the Congressman think he is - proposing legislation and crap. He can go to hell. If I live 60 miles from my job and drive a 16 mpg car then that is my business.

Having fun with the "I'm so freakin' mad" stuff are you?

You don't think this is an asinine piece of legislation? Really?

So because I was aggravated/upset/mad about the your boy Rev. Wright's comments I can't be mad about anything else? :9:

If I start a thread saying I'm mad about a parent killing their child will you promise to come in and post how "freakin mad you are" and all that cool stuff? :idunno:

This part is interesting:

The Earth Policy Institute proposes raising the gas tax 30 cents per gallon each year over a decade and offset with a reduction of income taxes, Brown said.

How about we use a gas tax to pay for all things relating to car travel? We expect Amtrak to fully support itself yet the government is subsidizing the roads.

So proposing this last year made much more sense? It's mentally challenged regardless.

If you would take time to read the link, he proposed this to start debate. He knew full well that no one in hell would be for this proposal.

Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., wants to help cut consumption with a gas tax but some don't agree with the idea, according to a new poll by the National Center for Public Policy Research.
The poll, scheduled to be released on Thursday, shows 48 percent don't support paying even a penny more, 28 percent would pay up to 50 cents more, 10 percent would pay more than 50 cents and 8 percent would pay more than a dollar.


From the article I posted.

I'm failing to see where in the article I posted it says it's 1 year old?

Looks like a clear illustration of the speed of the legislative process to me.

So wait I was supposed to know about that article why?

I posted a new link on :gasp: foxnews OMGLIARSLOLZOMG and I was supposed to do research? Please

I didn't even look to see if the guy was a Dem or Republican.. BECAUSE IT DOESN'T MATTER... I didn't post this because he's a Democrat dude.. I posted it because it's dumb and I would be willing to bet most people agree with that.

Save the foxnews hate for somewhere else.
