Making The Roads Great Again? Trump’s Big Gas Tax Proposal

by | Feb 15, 2018

According to press reports, President Trump is open to adding an additional 25 cents of federal tax on top of the existing 18.4 cents per gallon of gasoline. This is purportedly going to be used to pay for part of his big infrastructure program. The big tax hike would hit lower income Americans the hardest and would in the end not raise even a fraction of the $1.5 trillion we are told is needed to fix US infrastructure. Murray Sabrin, a US Senate candidate from New Jersey has a better idea: transfer the funds from the bloated military budget and eliminate the gas tax altogether! More in today’s Liberty Report:
