What the fuck is up with this gas-tax holiday? Is it is or is it ain't the most asinine scheme you've heard in the last several years of asinine schemes? I'll give The Saint credit where due on this one. He may also prattle about reducing the cost of a gallon, but at least he's not offering a Labor Day Sale Event.
At the heart of my approach is a simple belief. Middle-class families are paying too much and oil companies aren’t paying their fair share to help us solve the problems at the pump.It's simple all right. Let's assume for argument that the unlikely comes true and the temporary tax break helps us "solve the problems at the pump." Consumption, then, presumably spikes. This affects the oil companies "paying their fair share" precisely how? Well, I-uh guess I jus ain't simple nuff.
