Throwback Thursday: Senate Democrats Wanted to Saddle Working Families with
Higher Gas Prices

Albuquerque, NM– Former fiscally conservative State Senator, John Arthur Smith, showed how over two decades in Santa Fe can make someone out of touch with their constituents. In the middle of this past legislative session, Senator Smith advocated for higher gas taxes as a gimmick to pay for infrastructure projects. Higher gas taxes only mean one thing: higher prices at the pump.

“Higher taxes, especially on gasoline, would be crippling to working families across New Mexico,” said Pat Garrett, spokesman for the Republican Party of New Mexico. “Senator Smith’s proposal to bury working families with higher prices at the gas pump proves that he is no longer in touch with the folks back home.”

Senator Smith’s proposal was discussed in a Santa Fe New Mexican story that you can find by clicking here.
