Yup. It's an election year stunt. Barack Obama used those three words ("It's a stunt!") to sum up Hillary Clinton's support for a summer-long "gas tax holiday", the AP reports:
"It's a stunt," the Illinois senator said in Evansville. "It's what Washington does."Yeah, but what do THEY know? Do we really need another president who won't listen to the advice of experts in their field?
Obama's stance was backed up by 230 economists who released a letter Monday opposing the temporary tax break, which would take 18.4 cents off the price of a gallon if consumers got the full savings at the pump. The signers included four Nobel Prize winners and economic advisers to presidents of both parties.
Clinton shrugged off the blistering reviews from policy makers, industry experts and editorial writers.Yeah, that makes sense. Let's "take on the oil companies" by looting the Government's tax income while sitting idly by and letting the corporations wallow in their ridiculously huge windfall profits.
"I believe we should start standing up for the majority of Americans who are paying the outrageous gas prices," Clinton said. "I'm ready to take on the oil companies."
That'll show 'em!
Jesus! Is everyone taking CRAZY PILLS?!?
