Tom DeLay: No support to roll back gas tax

Politics News Article | Reuters.com: "House Republican Leader Tom DeLay said on Tuesday there was no support for rolling back the federal gasoline tax to offset higher prices.

'Absolutely not,' he told reporters after a meeting with President George W. Bush on issues related to Hurricane Katrina.

'Now more than ever you're going to need ... that infrastructure, those highway trust funds, to rebuild the bridges that were destroyed, rebuild the railroads that were destroyed. You have to have the infrastructure or you can't have a recovery,' DeLay, of Texas, said."

So Delay finally met a tax he likes. Wouldn't want to jeopardize all of those Highway Bill pork projects.
