Democrats Add More Fuel Taxes

leave a comment »

Tax and spend liberal Democrats Jay Rockefeller and Max Baucus reached an agreement today to raise the tax on private jet fuel from 21.8 cents a gallon to 36 cents a gallon in a move that will further cripple the ailing transportation sector.

The Bush administration threatened in June to veto the House legislation, saying it doesn’t meet the country’s needs. The end goal of these two big spenders is to use this money to lower the fuel taxes to airlines.

I’m all for lower taxes, but our taxes should not be lowered on the backs of the private jet owners who drive this country’s transportation system.  These are very important people and if they have more money to spend, it will eventually trickle down to the rest of us.  I am just happy that Bush’s veto can keep some semblance of rationality in our tax and spend government.
