Governor gets his tax increase

The Daily Item

— Well, Governor Corbett gets his tax increase finally.

He had said that gas tax revenues were down because people were driving cars which were highly economical and the state was selling less gas because of that.

Just wait until the over-the-road truckers start fueling up before entering the state and after they leave the state.

Talk to any trucker, they will tell you that. Of course, the only solution will be to raise the newly enacted tax some more.

Our state can no longer afford Gov. Corbett. I thought Gov. Rendell spent a lot of money, Gov. Rendell looks like a conservative compared to this.

And do not forget the 18-cents a gallon tax raise the federal government is trying to pass.
