Gassed

This past weekend I saw a news report describing Chicagoans–most likely Obama voters–crossing the state line to buy gasoline in Indiana, where it is cheaper (though not cheap by any measure). Don’t tell the Democrats running Illinois (into the ground); they will find a way to make these folks pay a “use tax” for buying their fuel in Indiana but using it here–as they already do for other products. What lawmakers ought to do is cut the gas taxes that make fuel here nearly the most expensive in America. And someone needs to tell these Chicago motorists that they have only themselves to blame, because they voted for Obama. Maybe they need to trade in their gas-guzzlers, which is the extent of Obama’s plan.
