Here’s a word of advice for you, President Biden: Get a Plan B ready in the apparently likely event that your fuel-tax holiday doesn’t make the grade in Congress.
I reluctantly endorsed your idea of suspending the fuel tax for 90 days, Mr. President, only because I want some immediate relief from these monstrous fuel prices. Hey, I just returned from an errand this morning, stopped to put some diesel fuel into my truck, stopped the pump at $35 … and then saw that I barely moved the fuel-gauge needle.
What would suspending the diesel fuel tax do for me? Not much, Mr. President. But it’s something!
Whatever you have on the back burner, sir, well … I am thinking you’d better dust it off and get it ready to present.
I am among those Americans who continues to seethe that Republicans continue to resist every single idea that comes from the White House, Mr. President.
I know that’s why we pay you the big dough, Mr. President. Still, just a little give from the “loyal opposition” would give me a glimmer of hope that good government is still possible.
