Brokaw quizzing Obama on Pigovian gas taxes

Right around the 7 minute mark on this past weekend’s Meet the Press. (The video should start playing just as Brokaw asks him about it.)

Obama’s response pretty much jives with what I said last week about now not being the right time, but when Brokaw pushed him, he kind of waffled on the possibility of a gas tax hike in the future. Impossible to read into his response at all because it’d be detrimental politically to do so. (Though if he slipped it in at the beginning of his term, it might be forgotten at the end of four years.)

It’s right around the 7 minute mark, and the video should start playing right as Brokaw asks the question.
