Oil Prices v. Farmers’ Milk Prices
The Capitol Hill Democrats answer is to regulate the farmer, control his cows, and tax the farmers’ number of milking cows. The reasonable common sense decision would be to encourage the farmer to raise and milk more cows; getting more milk into the marketplace, so as the consumer can purchase more milk at lower prices.
This issue of the season, as an analogy, is consumer gasoline prices. Finally, I understand. The Democrat Party team on Capitol Hill led by the Reid/Pelosi team has made a decision that Republican legislation for new oil drilling in productive areas will not be allowed to be voted on in the US Congress and/or the US Senate. Barack Obama is supporting the Democrats on the issue.
The Republican legislation is to make America oil independent. The Democrats continue to punish the American consumers with extremely high gasoline prices; causing other consumer goods to be met with escalating prices, also. In addition, the Democrats decision to refuse for new oil is costing our total economy in existing jobs as well as newer jobs. Capitol Hill Democrats say they want to allow more drilling; however, their decision is to allow drilling in dry, empty, or less productive locations. Capitol Hill Democrats continue to push new legislation to bring more control on the oil industry and tax more.
If President Reagan taught and proved us any lesson, it was that the open market with less government intervention generates a growing US economy! Everyone should know by now that new additional taxes on the products passes along to the consumer with added taxes placed on any product in the marketplace. When will the Capitol Hill Democrats learn?
Is the Capitol Hill Democrats protecting the OPEC nation citizens more important than protecting the American consumers? It certainly appears Capitol Hill Democrats are doing as much. American voters must remember on November 4 and hold Democrats directly responsible.
If the Capitol Hill Democrats take the Summer Break without voting to allow more drilling for oil in more productive areas, each should be held liable. Just say “NO” to Democrats on Capitol Hill! Consumers have been punished enough.
