What is Your Price Tag for Socialism?

People are angry about gas prices. They have jumped up and stayed up for the last few years. It's been hard on the budget!

Many people take the easy route and blame the oil companies, despite the facts that show other factors cause the oil price to change and that the oil companies only make 8.2% profit...not exactly a bragging point.

People are clammoring for government action. Socialism. It's shocking how "red-blooded Americans" are so willing to abandon the American way to save money on gas. The amazing thing is that a $1.50 increase in the price of gas is all it takes for some to jump into full-blown socialism. $1.50.

What is your price?

How about 5 billion dollars that Santurom justed voted to give the oil companies. By the way 8% of 3 dollars a gallon is better then 8% of $1.50 a gallon.

Only $5 billion? Too bad it isn't ten.

I would be happier if Rick eliminated all the red tape to build refineries and drill in ANWR.

That would be sweet. Perhaps in the next six years.

Welcome to the home of Welfare for the INC's.

Couldn't do it the past 6 years with a GOP house, senate & Pres. What's that say about the current GOP admin?

It says that there are too many limp-wristed RINOs and too many dems controlled by enviros.

That annoying so-called "fillibuster" keeps popping up, too.
