The federal government wants to raise the taxes you pay for gasoline.
Why does it want to raise taxes?
Because the Bridge Fund is running out of money.
Why is the Bridge Fund running out of money?
Because you have not been funding it like you did in the past.
Why have you been shorting the Bridge Fund?
Because you are driving fewer miles and using more fuel-efficient modes of transportation.
Why are you driving less with lower mpg cars?
Because the federal government raises the taxes on gasoline.
Hmm. I’m starting to see a pattern here.
Your federal government believes any problem can be solved, if you just give it more money.
The government is the biggest business in the nation. It just isn’t very good at it!
