Clinton Reiterates Support For Gas Tax Suspension

Hillary Rodham Clinton is digging in on her support of a proposed federal gas tax holiday.

Campaigning Friday in North Carolina, Clinton said that all she hears about while campaigning is gas prices, and she says she wants Congress to act. Clinton -- along with with New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez -- are planning to introduce legislation to levy a windfall profits tax on oil companies to fund the tax suspension.

Barack Obama has said a summertime suspension of the federal gasoline tax is a plan that would save at best pennies a day, "unless gas prices are raised to fill in the gap."

The proposed federal gas tax holiday has become a rare clear-cut policy difference between Obama and Clinton.

    The short clipping of Guam’s importance in the delegate vote this morning on Headline News was very VERY upsetting. I am a daughter of Guam and also a registered voter. How could CNN portray my beautiful MODERN island to be a third world country where children on the beach act as if they’ve never seen an airplane and as if waiting for their food to be dropped off??? They seemed to be video footage from the 60’s. How do you expect the rest of the world to take the delegate vote of Guam serious when CNN’s video footage made it seem like a third world country?! What would’ve been worthy of the 5 second clipping would have been to show footage of our University, our modern Airport, our Courthouse, our modernized Hotels and Restaurants??
