There a dilemma for Republican politicians
in the upcoming elections, soaring gas prices.
Anger over gas prices is gaining traction in many midterm races around the nation as Democrats attack Republicans for being too close to oil companies.
Republicans politicians need a simple solution
, give the people a new One Hundred dollar bill
Senate Republicans advocate sending $100 rebate checks to millions of taxpayers, and a Democrat is leading the campaign for a 60-day gasoline tax holiday.
Either way, it seems no one in Congress wants to be without a plan, however symbolic, to attack the election-year spike in gasoline prices.
A vote is possible as early as this week on the Senate GOP approach, which calls for $100 rebate checks for taxpayers to cushion the impact of higher gasoline prices. The measure seems unlikely to prevail, at least initially, since it includes a highly controversial proposal to open a portion of Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling.
There is always a catch, you only get the One Hundred dollar bill
if you let our friends the oil companies drill for oil in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Disgusting, Republican can never just do one thing for the people without giving a big giveaway to their donors.
How would I spend my $100 gas rebate check?
Give it to a politician who is not bankrolled by oil companies.
Give it to a politician who will raise the minimum wage.
Give it to a politician who will not drill in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
Give it to a politician who doesn’t have a reckless foreign policy.
Give it to a politician who will not vote for $14.5 billion in tax breaks for oil companies.
Give it to a politician who increase fuel-efficiency standards for car companies.
Give it to a Democrat.
Or maybe, I will buy some gas. One Hundred dollar bill
gas rebate check doesn’t cover five plus years of failed policies by a Republican controlled Government.
