That's probably why he has a name like " DINGELL"..
Even if they collected the tax, it would be going for "PORK" rather than anything constructive...

What happened to the 60cents on every gallon here in CA? It certainly isn't going into road improvements...

They are trying to incentivize you into not driving. Your just giving money to the state to pour down some bottomless pit. The best wayto get your money back is to come up with some pie in the sky alternative energy scheme and sucker grant money out of them. Or get grant money to study the effect on climate change on the mass of mature mule deer bucks in the western US. It will have to be post-mortem, of course.

Perhaps it should be made optional, those who believe the global warming tale can pay the extra $.50...
Those who don't can opt out of the program ! Souinds like clear logic to me..make everybody happy !

If the $1.80 that has been added to a gallon of gas since I bought my truck 4 years ago hasn't kept me from driving more, how the heck is $0.50 going to? This guy is so out of touch with reality.

No.

I think it's a matter of somebody suffering from the "A" desease.

52 years in the Congress?

There needs to be an age cap.

60 and you are done.

Why not an even dollar? Hell, make it $2 per gallon...that way not a single Liberal will ever be elected in this country again.

Outstanding idea!!! Let's see just how dedicated some of these tree huggers are to their cause.

They should lead by example for the next ten years while I think about if I agree.

Typical liberal crap. Let everybody else pay for it. Why not just make it an even dollar and give the other 50 cents to the bums who don't want to work.

Yeah, exactly what I was thinking. This is just a typical Democrat attempt to re-distribute wealth...again. It's what they do best.
