Bredesen will push for a Gas Tax HIKE

Second terms mean increased taxes, Bredesen will be no different. During his first term the Governor had to be careful about cutting the family budgets of Tennessee families. Now, with no re-election to concern him, he will happily cut our family budgets by raising taxes. His arrogance has grown and he is now willing to tell us how we should feel, i.e., he is ready to stop listening and start coercing.
Meanwhile, Bredesen said that he continues to oppose a state income tax and that he opposes removing the state's 6-cent sales tax on food, as some legislators have proposed: "If I were a poor person, I would get more benefit out of the state if I pay an extra buck on groceries, and I get better schools."
