Watch Joy Reid rip the Republican Party to shreds.

 

Herrell 's latest proposed amendment is to suspend the federal gasoline tax.  

 

"The PUMP Act Amendment would provide direct relief to middle class Americans by granting a temporary federal gas tax holiday for the next 6 months or until the federal public health emergency order related to COVID-19 expires, whichever is longer."

 

This cockamamie proposal would cut funding for our crumbling roads while saving a 20 gallon per week family a whopping $3.70 per week.
