Congressional Members to Propose Gas Tax Hike

Here is a copy of what I sent to my congressional members, and I suggest you do the same. Now that fuel prices have lowered, helpful during present economic conditions - we do not need the federal government making it more expensive ... especially since they take too much anyway.
The two sponsors for the tax hike are:
Republican Jim Renacci of Ohio and Democrat Bill Pascrell of New Jersey ...
Neither should be a member of Congress.
Feel free to use the content of his letter to send to your congressional members:

Dear (Your Representative):
Dear Your Senator(s):

The federal gas tax was imposed to fund the construction of the interstate highway system and was originally supposed to sunset in 1969. It's long past time to return this power to the states and local governments without running money through a huge Washington bureaucracy.
Any tax hike would be a step in the wrong direction.

Wage growth has been stagnant for several years, and higher gas taxes would take back the financial relief families are finally feeling as prices at the pump have eased.

I urge you to vote NO on any proposed federal gas tax hike, including the Corker-Murphy and Renacci-Pascrell proposals.
