The Irony of Self-Righteous Politicians

From the Club for Growth:

Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle wants to tax oil companies in his state, but at the same time, prevent them from passing the cost onto consumers.

It's liberal. It's punitive. It's unconstitutional. But it's really not a big surprise.

However, here's the ironic part. Doyle also wants to increase drivers' license fees by $10 because it's costing the state more money to comply with new federal identification mandates.

In other words, Doyle wants the freedom to pass costs onto taxpayers regarding drivers' license fees, but he wants to deny that same freedom to oil companies.
