As if our state wasn't in bad enough financial shape - one-state recession, record forclosures, etc., we hear that the "Big Three" are counting on this being the worst year for auto sales in over ten years. Just what Michigan needs to hear!
So to make us feel better, our very own Rep. Dingell supports a $0.50 per gallon additional gasoline tax.
You know what my suggestion to Dingell is? He's so concerned with companies "outsourcing" jobs. How about this - we'll pay $0.50 more per gallon as soon as China and India start taxing their citizens to curb greenhous gas emissions, OK?
