Dems Propose to Prop Up Bush's Poll Numbers?
Given that even the pollsters are admitting that President Bush's poll numbers appear to be inversely related to gas prices, this seems helpful
:Democrats are set to introduce a measure that would create a "federal gas tax holiday" by eliminating the federal tax on gas and diesel for sixty days...
As usual, the devil is in the details.Democrats say the money will be made up by cutting six billion dollars in tax breaks to oil firms. Currently, the money from the federal gas tax goes to the Highway Trust fund.
Let me guess, the tax break reduction won't be limited to 60 days?
