During his campaign stop in Springfield today, Sen. John McCain reiterated his support of a suspension of the gas tax:
“In the short term, I can give you some relief,” McCain told Sarah Craig, a small business owner who told the Arizona senator current gas prices are hurting her bottom line.
“What are you going to do today? What are you going to do next week that helps us now?” Craig asked, repeating a common question among voters these days.
McCain said suspending the gas tax and "maybe" giving taxpayers another economic stimulus check would give Americans short-term relief.
