HEADLINE AT THE HILL.COM reads, GOP Shifts to Offense in Highway Bill Fight.
You know, you could just write, “GOP Shifts to Offense” — full stop — and consider that a feelgood news piece. Really doesn’t matter what the subject is. Just that the GOP in Congress were to show some spine would be good news.
And then there’s this:
If an extension is not passed before Saturday, the government’s authority to collect the 18.4 cent-per-gallon gasoline tax would expire.
Which excites two responses. A) “You say that like it’s a BAD thing.” And 2) “Only 18.4 cents? Damn! We need to work on that!”
