Letter | No more gas tax

The federal government is saying it will run out of transportation funding for roads and bridges in August. Its solution is to add 15 cents to a gallon of gasoline nationwide.

We the people of Pennsylvania just received 28 cents of tax on a gallon of gas starting this year, thanks to our local senator, representatives and Gov. Tom Corbett.

This new proposed federal tax of 15 cents a gallon would take us well over $4 a gallon in this area.

These progressive politicians — Democrats and Republicans — need to be voted out of office. All the promises they make to the voters become nothing but just lies.

If you like what you hear from these guys, keep voting for them. They will never get my vote.
