Letter: No thanks for gas tax vote

To the editor:

Just a quick thank-you to our Democratic politicians who Massachusetts voted for. I want to thank you for raising our gas taxes yet again and also tying them to inflation. When inflation goes up, our gas taxes will go up, and the Democratic politicians can say, “I didn’t do it. Inflation did it!”

Citizens, go online and check if your state representative and senator voted for it and then send them a thank-you note!
