Clinton Suspends Gas Tax Funds by Taxing Oil Companies More

Really goo-d idea? John McCain first made the proposal, but how would he pay for it?

Oh Clinton will prevent that how, by garnishing the entire profits of the oil companies and giving them back what amount she thinks they should have???

On the downside, the tax holiday won't lower the cost to drivers says a guest on CNN, The Situation Room... and the programs the tax funds won't be totally paid for by the tax holiday or the higher tax on oil companies...
