We just dealt with the debt ceiling a few weeks ago. The Senate has reached a deal to forestall the shutdown that is scheduled for the end of this month, 30 September. This supposedly keeps everything running until Friday, 18 November. After that we’ll be in an election year. I wonder what surprises await us then.
You’re cruising in your Prius Hybrid. You’re buying gas every couple weeks. You go to get your new license plate and BAM! There is a $100 fee attached because you’re not buying enough gas, and consequently aren’t paying enough gas tax.
Amazing how that works, isn’t it?
