Obama: The Truth About Gas Prices
I have wondered just how Senators Clinton and McCain propose to lift the $0.18/gallon Federal gas tax this summer without agreement from the rest of Congress and President Bush. Can anyone tell me how that might occur? I am very curious. If they have such power, then why are they not in Congress, right now, getting a bill before President Bush so that we can override his veto before the summer arrives. Or are they actually talking about waiting till summer of 2009 to do something?
I think Senator Obama's response is reasonable and honest whereas the others are saying what is needed to gain momentum before the November 2008 elections.
