But Tom, you said that those particular taxes would hopefully be redistributed to the poor.

I doubt it would go to subsidize the poor even further.<< I'm sure that everyone who does not lose a loved one would be happier, but of course they would never know that they would have lost a loved one if gas prices did not go up. >>Nonsensical.I believe the wealthier would be happier than the poor.
