I'm getting pretty annoyed at the mainstream media continuing to frame the capping of the gas tax as a "cost" to the state.
The latest, is this AP article entitled, "Gas tax limit means $600 million lost for state."
Why is it not written, "Gas tax limit means $600M savings for taxpayers."
Apparently, the press thinks the economy is just peachy and we taxpayers should gladly give up an additional $600M in revenue. It's almost like it believes the money belongs to the government first and is generously letting us keep it.
