Child like California Republicans and their new gas tax fantasy world

Just weeks before it takes effect, California’s new gas tax increase is again under attack, with Republicans mounting a growing campaign against the higher levies.

Yawn.

Celebrated by Democrats as a victory for Californians weary of traveling the state’s distressed roads and highways, the law now faces repeal in two possible ballot initiatives floated by its opponents.

Several of California’s Republican members of Congress endorsed that effort this week, all but ensuring the tax hikes will be a major issue in the 2018 election.

Republicans filed papers last month to put an initiative on the November 2018 ballot that would repeal the gas tax and vehicle fee increases and amend the state Constitution to require voter approval for future tax boosts.

It’s hard to take California Republicans seriously.
