Big Business joins the Pigou Club

The AP reports:

The nation's largest business group said Tuesday it will oppose big tax increases in 2008 but might support increases targeted at improving aging U.S. roads, bridges and railways.

U.S. Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Thomas Donohue, in a press briefing on the group's 2008 agenda, suggested it might endorse raising federal gasoline taxes or imposing a new carbon tax.
