Tierney, Tisei spar again

Fishman works to distinguish himself from his fellow candidates


Tierney said an important investment for the country would be progerams to improve road, bridges and water infrastructures — an expensive cost, but one that would create more jobs and “not tax breaks for millionaires..”

The congressman said the federal government needs to “look into price gouging” at the gas pump and also get speculators out of the market place. He blamed speculators for adding at least 60 cents per gallon of gasoline.

Fishman said the federal government should not be interfering by subsidizing fossil fuel companies.

“We have been paying a lot less for gasoline because we have been subsidizing with our tax money,” he said. “Government intervention has definitely hurt us in the energy market.”
