I have to tell you, I'm really worked up about the price of gas, and every time I hear the stupid Democrats open their mouths I get more angry. Today, for the umpteenth time, President Bush called for allowing drilling for oil in ANWR. The majority of Alaskans want it. (Check out the website for ANWR.org if you don't believe me.)
So how do the Democrats respond? Senator Chuck Schumer gave the usual reply that it will take 10 years before new oil could be produced. He forgot to mention that for the past 7 years he and his buddies have stood in the way of drilling in ANWR, off our shores or anywhere in the continental US. He also forgot to mention that his buddy, Bill Clinton, vetoed a bill in 1994 which would have allowed drilling in ANWR.
Schumer went on to say he would like to raise taxes on oil companies. Memo to Schumer: Raising taxes has never reduced prices.
President Bush said he would be open to the idea of a "holiday" on the federal gas tax for the summer to ease the pain at the pump. This idea is also supported by John McCain and Hillary Clinton (of all people). But the rest of the Democrats, including Barack Obama, are against it. Heaven forbid they should give a tax break to the people paying their hefty salaries.
Be prepared to see gas prices increase even further. The price of food will continue increase while we waste tax payer money, gas and corn to produce ethanol. The liberals' policies are coming home to roost while the media and the American people give them a pass.
