Insulting and Inadequate Gas Rebate

A $100 gas rebate: there is a token gesture. Instead of taking any measures to avert or solve an energy crisis, our Capitol Hill spokespersons for business interests think they can appease voters by giving us a tax break that amounts to less than what many of us spend on gasoline in a month. Ultimately, this proposition was rejected by the House as “insulting and inadequate.” I think the House is insulting and inadequate.

  • This was sponsored by Senator Frist, who also allegedly blamed the high gas prices on former President Clinton. I'm no fan of Clinton, but I have a hard time finding him at fault for the gas priced five years after he left office.

  • I want to explode with comments on this post, but Big Brother may be watching.

    Let's just say that nothing connected to the energy markets happens as the result of a logical order of events.

    Never.

    Never ever.

    Never mind.

  • I cracked up when I heard Frist claiming that the $100 rebate would "make a real difference" to working families. Right. A real difference for about two tanks of gas.
