Gas Tax, please

Dr. Greg Mankiw calls it “The Pigou Club” (after economist Arthur Pigou, who advocated using taxes as a way to correct for negative externalities).

That Software Guy calls it the “fund the war and the follow up costs, including veterans benefits, instead of screwing our warriors and giving our kids the bill” club.
