MCCAIN: THE SOLUTION TO RECESSION IS POLLUTION!

In a speech today in Pittsburgh, John McCain will call for a suspension of the gas tax this summer. The AP reports:


To help people weather the downturn immediately, McCain was calling for Congress to institute a "gas-tax holiday" by suspending the 18.4 cent federal gas tax and 24.4 cent diesel tax from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

McCain is the recipient of plenty of back patting just because he's a Republican who actually believes global warming is real. Congratulations. But proposals like this one show he hasn't at all absorbed the seriousness of the problem, and the lifestyle and economic changes that will be required to combat it. More driving, more consumption of natural resources, and less use of public transportation are not the answer.
