...for the sky rocketing gas prices, remember that the spike took place when Pelosi, Reid and the rest of the democrats took over Congress.
It is very clear that democrats, Barak Obama included, want higher gas taxes.
They really don't care what effect that will have on the average American.
Democrats failed to pass the "cap and trade" legislation last week that would raise the price of gasoline by 56 cents per gallon. So this week they tried to pass a "windfall profit" tax on energy companies. The tax would of course be passed on to consumers, thus raising gasoline prices even more. Let us get honest: the Democrats want to price gasoline out of the reach of the average American.
So next time you fill up your tank, be sure to remember that price has doubled in the last 18 months thanks to Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and the democrat majority in Congress!
