Republican Senators are proposing to give every American a $100 rebate check to offset the high costs of gas.
Gosh, they’re great for our wallets, aren’t they?
Oh….only one problem: The energy bill which contains that proposal also would open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska to oil drilling. You know — the rape-the-environment plan that has been defeated several times already.
Or, gee, maybe we could ask why the oil companies were given 14.5 BILLION dollars in tax breaks in August 2005, and are now posting record profits? (not costs….not income….PROFITS.)
