On Friday’s Countdown show, MSNBC analyst Jonathan Alter, also of Newsweek, suggested that voters who support Hillary Clinton’s call for a temporary suspension of the federal gasoline tax are “stupid” as he contended that the Clinton campaign team are “assuming that people are too stupid to realize that this is a bad idea that won’t save them any money at the pump.”
I defy you to find one Democrat who will point to any tax and say “this is excessive, we don’t need this money for government. It should stay with the people who actually earn the money”.
Even Hillary’s “acceptance” of this tax holiday is not really one. She just is so stupid as to think that she can force the oil companies to pay the tax and not pass the expense on to the consumers. This ignorance of the laws of supply and demand sure makes her sobriquet of “Smartest Woman In the World” seem rather inappropriate.
