U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan: ‘We’re not going to raise gas taxes’

House Speaker Paul Ryan pledged on Wednesday that the House would not vote to raise a tax on gasoline, after President Trump reportedly endorsed such a proposal to help pay for his infrastructure overhaul.

“Well, we’re not going to raise gas taxes so I don’t foresee that as a problem. We’re just not going to do that here,” Ryan said on a phone call with the conservative group Americans for Prosperity.

“There are some people who are talking about that, but the last thing we want to do is pass historic tax relief in December and then undo that, so we are not going to raise gas taxes.”
