Dear fellow tax hikers, as gas prices enjoyed an astronomic rise today, we wish to remind you of Congresswoman Jean Schmidt's historical support of higher gas taxes. When former Governor Bob Taft wanted to raise Ohio's Gas Tax, Schmidt didn't need to be asked twice.
Jean Schmidt voted to raise the Gas Tax by 27%. Schmidt knew gas prices were too low. And besides, the government needed that money more than you.
When you go to the polls in two weeks, please remember the role Jean Schmidt played in raising gas prices to $3.70/gallon. We needed higher gas prices. We needed a 27% increase in the gas tax. We needed the great leadership that Bob Taft and Jean Schmidt provided.
