The title really needs punctuation as "Forgotten Promises" is what happened with the stated convictions of Nancy Pelosi from a smidge over 4 years ago. "Give Me Gas" is what the nation is screaming right now as we reach the tipping point.
While Obama was never too upset about skyrocketing oil/gas prices, before the Democrats took back the Senate, Pelosi said, “With record gas prices, record CEO pay packages, and record oil company profits, Speaker Hastert and the Majority Congress continue to give the American people empty rhetoric rather than join Democrats who are working to lower gas prices now.
“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.”
Not only did the Dems do nothing about the prices, they are doubling down on Green Tech banter. Obama thinks that skyrocketing gas prices will force us to go all in on supposedly green alternatives.
So, America will get hybrid and electric cars shoved down our throats. We will continue to turn food into fuel as the world food shortage is killing people. Even though, to turn food into fuel, you must use other fuels.
Let the madness continue and promises fade only to be replaced with more promises.
