  •  "Poor people need gasoline" is idiotic framing (1+ / 0-)

    All citizens need a pathway to economic participation.  Unsustainable economic activity should not be supported.

    We know that the price of fossil fuels does not include all externalities, and needs to be much higher to promote rational decision making.

    Raising the gasoline tax by a couple of bucks a gallon is a great idea.  Simultaneously, we need a real discussion of what the social effects of that will be and how to mitigate them.

    PatriciaVa's formulation is intended to shut down discussion of necessary change, not promote it.
