And now for something completely different…
The following is from TheHill.com
“In a press release dated April 24, 2006, Pelosi said, “Democrats have a commonsense plan to help bring down skyrocketing gas prices by cracking down on price gouging, rolling back the billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies, tax breaks and royalty relief given to big oil and gas companies, and increasing production of alternative fuels.” The letter cited policies put in place during the GOP control of Congress that the Speaker claimed had raised prices on American consumers to benefit oil companies.
The House GOP leaders’ letter points out that the price of gasoline has spiked $1.18 since Democrats took over in January and stands at $3.51.”
[Please read the following out loud with a sarcastic tone]: I am sure the plan hasn’t worked because: A) They haven’t really told us what it is in the last 2 years even though gas prices have gone through the roof and B) Because it is all really George Bush’s fault the prices are so high. We all know he controls gas prices around the world and even got us in the war in Iraq for oil. Bush must really be dumb because he got loads of secret free oil from Iraq and the price just keeps going up. I guess we can really blame Cheney or Carl Rove.
