McCaskill fighting gas prices, high living expenses on state tour

Wednesday, April 4, 2012 | 9:39 a.m. CDT

ST. LOUIS — Sen. Claire McCaskill is launching a statewide tour starting with a stop in St. Louis.

The Democrat will appear at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday at a Crown Mart-BP Station and will stop in Columbia later in the day. She calls it her "Fighting for Fairness" tour and says she is standing up for Missouri families struggling with rising gas prices and high living expenses. She also faults what she calls an unfair tax code that favors the wealthy.

The tour will include stops in the Kansas City and Springfield areas.

"She also faults what she calls an unfair tax code that favors the wealthy."

Maybe some reporter will have the guts to ask her how that can be the case when the vast majority of the 47% who owe no federal income taxes make $50K or less.
