Senator John Thune joins Mike Barnicle on Morning Joe

Senator John Thune (R-D), Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, joins Morning Joe to respond to Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) accusations of gridlock and discusses opposition to raising the federal gas tax. “This country is falling apart, bridges and roads crumbling… the last time the gas tax was raised to support the Highway Trust Fund was 1993. Gasoline prices have come down enormously in the last two years. Would you support a nickel increase in the federal gas tax in order to rebuild parts of America?,” asks MSNBC’s Mike Barnicle of Senator Thune. Listen to the conversation here.
