Just a note to my Tea Party friends in Red State Indiana. Folks, you have had your proverbial panties taken down, by the rabble rousers. They fired you up about draining the swamp of political insiders in our government. But, every single one of President elect Trump's cabinet appointees has been a corporate or government insider, every single one. And, in those states which elected Republical state legislatures, such as Indiana, we are already seeing the working class under viscious attack. Read this, INDIANA GOP WANTS HIGHER GASOLINE TAX.
In case you can't figure out why they chose a higher gasoline tax, instead of say a higher state income tax, let me help you. The rich don't have to drive to work. Gasoline taxes are paid mostly by working class poor people who have to drive to work. In Indiana and other Red States, they are driving to low wage jobs with no health insurance benefits, so in the GOP mind set, they are the perfect target for a tax hike. They are too busy trying to surviveto complain. While if the state legislature taxes incomes, stock dividends, corporate profits or the purchase of yachts and private air planes, the rich will raise holy hell and buy a new set of state legislators.
Not pissed off yet? Consider this, the SAME piece of GOP legislation would create a TAX PENALTY for those Hoosiers driving electric cars.
