Mike Barnicle on raising the gas tax to help fight terrorism

On Morning Joe, Mike Barnicle engages Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee on whether or not he would raise the gas tax to help fight terrorism. “The consensus among people actually fighting the 'war on terror' on a daily basis is that it’s going to be a generational war—it’s going to go on for quite some period of time. So, given current economic conditions in this country and the vast oil resources that the world is now seeing, would you be in favor of a one cent hike in the federal gas tax—something that hasn’t been raised since 1994—dedicated to fighting the ‘war on terror'?,” asks Mike. Hear Gov. Huckabee’s answer here. Only on MSNBC.
