Host to Hillary: Name one economist that agrees with you
On the issue of the gas tax repeal, she could
This morning, George Stephanopoulos began his televised interviewwith Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton by asking if she could name asingle economist who supported her plan for a gas-tax suspension.
Mrs. Clinton did not. ???¬?I???¬??m not going to put in my lot witheconomists,???¬?? she said on the ABC program ???¬?This Week.???¬?? A few momentslater, she added, ???¬?Elite opinion is always on the side of doing thingsthat really disadvantages the vast majority of Americans.???¬??
Or, maybe your proposal just isn't practical. If worldwide demand is what is driving up oil prices, then increasing demand even more by eliminating the gas tax for a short period of time won't help either.
