Oh?

""Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer aims to nearly triple gas tax with 45 cents-per-gallon increase

New Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who campaigned on a bold plan to “fix the damn roads” in the capital of the U.S. auto industry, will propose nearly tripling the state’s per-gallon fuel tax, her office said Monday.

The Democrat’s budget proposal, which will be a tough sell in the Republican-led Legislature, would boost the 26-cent gasoline and diesel tax by 45 cents by October 2020. The tax hikes would coincide with relief “to help offset the cost to people’s pocketbooks,” which Whitmer will discuss further when she presents her spending plan Tuesday, said spokeswoman Tiffany Brown."

Warpig already chimed in on this:

"Wait, wait, wait....so what you're saying is....a Democrat....wants to.....raise taxes?

Here's her Infrastructure plan that she ran on for governor.

Nothing in here about a new gas tax.

But you probably knew that. "

Yup.  Gee, I wonder what Michigan is doing with the $10 billion plus taxes a year they already take in....

Besides prisons I mean.

If you ignore a problem it goes away, right?
