McCain silliness

John McCain's proposal for a summer "holiday" from federal gasoline taxes is an example of Washington politics at its worst. Aside from enlarging the federal budget deficit, such a move would have little impact on the national economy. While purporting to help average consumers, this "holiday" would simply take big oil companies off the hook for their obscene profits.

This proposal shouldn't obscure the fact that McCain continues to push for throwing billions down the drain in Iraq. These billions will continue to be spent until Congress grows a spine and turns off the money spigot. We can dream, can't we!
