Tax deductible rides on the train?

If that's possible, why shouldn't the gasoline
a worker buys every year for his car
to commute to work be deductible too?

How about shoe leather for those who walk to
the job?

Or bicycle tires?

C'mon, these aren't some minimum-wage peanut
pickers in Georgia. They're the best paid
workers in the country.

These House Republicans are sure on the ol' money
train.$200 thousand per year for doing
absolutely nothing.

Sucking on that federal teat for all they
can get. Like Michelle Bachmann, congressional
pay and perks and $250,000 in subsidies for
her "family farm."

Slurp! Gulp! Slurp! Belch! Fart!

Yummmmm, that free money sure tastes good.

The nation needs to stop slopping these
GOP pigs.

Why should these "workers" get a tax break?
They should't.
It will cost them more?
TOO BAD!
Who else gets tax free money to get to work?
Nobody.
Foot your own bills.
The fact that you work in Washington, means that you already get perks that most only dream of.
If you don't like the commute, then quit, or commute without the perk that you shouldn't have had in the first place...
California is expecting to extort billions for businesses through a rebate rollback... I'm sure the liberal nexus of the US can do even better.
Hmm.. I'm thinking that anyone who got that credit should have to pay it back... yeah.. WITH INTEREST!
Sue them now.
Sue them all.
Let them eat ObamaCare...
