Empty promises, empty pockets: Every election we hear all these promises and accusing each other of different things so we vote for the wrong people sometimes and regret it. A president who won’t make any changes that will help. A new governor who said no new taxes but after being elected he says the state will need some tax increases. His transportation people go on Sunday morning talk shows and say the gas tax needs to be increased by nine cents. They pushed for everyone to get electric cars and now the people with gas cars are going to get punished.
