It seems that while President Obama was speaking about holding BP fully responsible for the worst oil spill in history, and that his boot was on the neck of BP, the House was busy working their magic. Not wanting to miss the opportunity to take advantage of a "good crisis", they voted and passed a bill that would raise the tax on gas from 8 cents a barrel to 34 cents a barrel. That is quadrupled! Do you understand? Big government and big corporation will always take care of each other, and we end up paying the price for this cleanup in the long run. And late on Friday of a long weekend - what an opportunity to sneak this through without too much notice. The Senate will have to review and revise this when they come back, but does anyone have any doubt that we will be paying the price for this?
