Petroleum Marketers: Screw Taxpayers OUR Way!

The Petroleum Marketers' Association runs ads denouncing Three-Card-Monte Doyle's "oil company tax"--which is a risky scheme, not likely to last 24 hours in a Federal court.

So their idea is what?

It's backing a 3-cent-per-gallon gas tax boost that would collect $170 million over the biennium. In addition, the proposal includes raising the vehicle title fee from $53 to $78, which would garner $61 million over the biennium.

In other words, PMA concedes that the Thief-in-Chief's theft of $400 million in highway-trust funds was perfectly licit, and also concedes that his TEN PERCENT INCREASE IN STATE SPENDING is perfectly licit, too.
