With gasoline prices hitting new highs across the country, Sen. John F. Kerry plans to propose new policies on Tuesday for reducing auto fuel costs in a move certain to escalate the election-year political fight over prices at the pump.

Facing GOP attacks for advocating higher gas taxes as a senator, the Massachusetts Democrat will call on President Bush to apply greater pressure on oil-producing nations to increase production, in a bid to drive down crude oil prices, and to temporarily suspend filling U.S. oil reserves, said Stephanie Cutter, a Kerry spokeswoman.


Yah, this should be a long term fix! LOL

Kerry's gas plan, if he becomes President, would pattern the typical liberal approach. First, raise taxes by at least $2 per gallon in order to dampen demand. Second, tax credits for folks who buy high milage cars. Third, tax credits for companies that make high milage cars. The tax would certainly have an effect. The second and third items would be as useless as they've been for the past 30 years since Carter put them in place. The obvious solution, developing more domestic oil resources and refinning capability would never enter Kerry's mind, nor would the development of nuclear energy, which would free up more oil for use in transportation.

I seem to remember that George McGovern promoted a $.50/gallon gasoline tax in 1972. I suppose we can conclude from this that Kerry is four times as liberal as George McGovern?

On top of that McGovern is a cool name, Kerry is a girls name.

Heh, heh! This implies that liberalism has been inflated 400% in the past 32 years?

Destroying the economy in the process.

It really doesn't matter what Kerry believes or thinks because George Jr. will be the next president. He'll win and the score will be 69% to 31%. It might even be like that Dukakis race. I'm voting for whoever is the Green Party Candidate by the way. - Art
