From the Las Vegas Sun: Two senators unveiled a bipartisan plan Wednesday to raise federal gasoline and diesel taxes for the first time in more than two decades, pitching the proposal as a solution to Congress' struggle to pay for highway and transit programs.
The plan also calls for offsetting the tax increases with other taxes cuts. Senators said that could be done by permanently extending six of 50 federal tax breaks that expired this year, but they indicated they would be open to other suggestions for offsets.
The plan was immediately embraced by industry and transportation advocacy groups seeking a long-term means to keep the federal Highway Trust Fund solvent. However, it would require a lot of heavy lifting from Congress in the politically-charged atmosphere of an election year to pass such a plan before late August, when the trust fund is forecast to go broke.
We already have gas prices moving close to $4.00 a gallon and these idiots want to raise the price 12 cents more.
These two are complete idiots who are stupid to the cost of gas now days.
I'm not surprised a Democrat would support this but a Republican does? 
May the Republican receive a bag of flaming bag of dog poop on his front porch.
