Popular tax around is the gas tax people assume.
That the money when they pay at the pump goes into the highly press and it's gonna be used to build roads and bridges to maintain.
Yeah that's a popular thing people think we need -- so to me it's deceptive to -- To load.
The extravagance of the -- Obama administration to be paid off by people that pay you guessed it.
Yeah this that would they didn't they eat probably didn't know -- they did -- 1990 -- 1993.
Is about a nickel increase each time.
So at that time that almost double of the guest.
Now that it's so early on Brennan -- will be president I -- it hits the exact people that they talk about protecting.
And that Democrats talked about protecting the last election goes right after -- -- hits it hits the middle class.
And lower income people the -- -- -- because it's incredibly Democrats have.
-- I feel like today when I was hearing you know talk about trying to close this gap we're looking under every rock for more money more tax revenue it doesn't seem like we're talking about cutting spending very much is that the right -- well.

And that simply that there's at -- no reason not to -- all the way through and in yet.
He he's going to be fighting -- I don't know how that's gonna turnout I would say this though the one thing that as we know is that it continues to increase because.
You might recall before the election I came out with the -- increases in regulations.
That he was going to do after the election.
Not to do this he had to violate a law because you love it says every six months you come out with the did the cost is in terms of jobs in -- and new regulations.
