I know I traditionally save my anger for Republicans, but Corzine's plan to save New Jerseyans money on gas is just soooo stupid.
First, he wants to reduce the speed limit on the turnpike to 55. Because cars are apparently more fuel efficient at 55.
Um, okay Corzine, except we want to drive our cars at 65 (and over). What we want is cheaper gas... not be forced to drive our cars at fuel-efficient speeds.
Second, he wants to end full-service at the pump, New Jersey's pride and joy. While people in other states have to pump their own gas, we have station attendants and never have to leave our cars.
People accused Corzine of being an out-of-touch millionaire when he was running for office. This proves it. I haven't done a poll, but I think its safe to say the vast majority of New Jerseyans take pride in our full-service pumps, and wouldn't give that up to save 5 cents a gallon.
Ending full service would cause attendants to lose their jobs and would cause higher crime at gas stations.
Does Corzine even drive in New Jersey? Does he drive at all? Where do these plans come from? The Democratic Party Handbook For How To Lose Elections?
Hit the road Corzine.
