Barack Obama's Position on a Gas Tax Holiday in 2008

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

How come we didn't have all these drilling issues and guests issues and all the rest of it When Trump was president which is why Biden and his team of morons have gotten together and they keep blaming Putin So now Biden has come up with a brilliant idea Let us suspend the federal gas tax for 90 days 90 days And by the way Russia is selling more oil and gas than ever before making a fortune So even that's not working So let's do it this way In their own words Obama at a campaign rally in April 2008 On a gas tax holiday April 2008 cut one go I know that we're having a debate right now about the gas tax holiday I know how brutal this is on folks right now There I know they need relief which is why I've offered a middle class tax cut for every American a thousand dollars for working families that they can deal not only with rising gas prices but rising healthcare costs and rising grocery costs but for us to suggest that 30 cents a day for three months Israel relief that that's a real energy policy Means that we are not tackling the problem that has to be tackled We are offering gimmicks when we're offering the same thing that John McCain's offering on the cheap That means we're not presenting a truthful response to the challenges that we face in America we can do better than that this time Yeah
