Combined with this gas tax holiday nonsense I gotta say I'm starting to lean Schellinger.
And speaking of assuming the voters are morons, today Thompson fleshed out her plan to cut gas taxes:
Thompson said a cap on the gasoline sales tax when the pump price exceeds $2.75 per gallon would save Hoosiers today 7 cents a gallon or $150 million a year.
"The high cost of oil is having an impact on many, many Hoosier families and it’s important for us to give them a break," Thompson said.
Thompson said such savings would stimulate the state’s economy by allowing families to spend elsewhere.
Wow, that $150 million sounds like a lot. Of course, if there are 6.5 million people in Indiana, then that means every Hoosier will save... $23. Per year. Just shy of two extra dollars a month you can use to "stimulate the economy." What will you do with all that money? Buy a hot dog? Lose it in your couch cushions?
