Meaningless Raise

The Washington Post reports the IRS has finally agreed to raise the lousy gas mileage allowance by a lousy 8 cents, from 50.5 to 58.5.

Now let's see, just within the last year or so, gasoline prices have gone up by 80 percent or more; and people who use their cars in business get to deduct a pitiful additional 4 percent.

Guess that represents Bush & McSame's energy plan. Wait a minute, Obama voted for Bush's energy give away in '05 and McSame didn't.

Guzzle up, drivers and get ready for the big screw either way.

At least they still get a deduction; the rest of us poor smucks don't get a deduction for anything.
