Rick Newman On Economy And The Gas Tax

Rick Newman of Yahoo! Finance returned to my America Weekend show today to talk about a recent report saying the US economy shrank in the first quarter of this year by a couple of percentage points, after five straight years of gains. He explained what that means for American workers and businesses, and how it impacts people at the lower end of the income scale. We also discussed why it's time to raise the gas tax to bring more money into the national highway fund and repair our crumbling infrastructure.
