The sky is falling! Our bridges are crumbling!
We are in grave danger!
But, just in time, our State legislators have jumped up to save us.
How can they do that so easily?
Well it is actually not that hard.
They just voted to double the tax you and I pay on every gallon of gas we buy. Thanks Representative Everett, Representative Hanna, Senator Yaw, and Gov. Corbett for this wonderful and, of course, urgently necessary large tax increase.
Since the price of gas fluctuates so much, you probably think we will not even notice it.
But 30 cents a gallon more is actually a real big deal to those of us whose income is somewhat below yours.
Is state Representative Rick Mirabito our only elected official who thinks doubling our taxes is just not right?
And Sun-Gazette, where are you on this? Nobody seems to be shouting that the $2.4 billion tax increase is coming from our own pockets!
