Related to yesterdays post regarding the gas tax holiday, where I stated
Both Clinton and McCain have it wrong, I imagine they contacted their campaign advisors rather than their economic advisors before suggesting its repeal.
Apparently it's at least in part true. Over here
John McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee who should know better, was the first presidential candidate to endorse the gas-tax holiday for the summer driving season. Reportedly, the idea originated with a political pollster, not among Mr. McCain's economic advisers.
