Remember when Obama was making a huge push for the Payroll tax cut by asking people what they would do with an extra $40 a paycheck? Where is Obama now that gas prices have gone up 60 cents a gallon?
I know people that have to fill up their tanks twice a week. Say 20 gallons a week = $12. Their monthly gasoline budget has just jumped by almost $50. We are all hurting from this. Higher gasoline prices mean we have less money for other things: travel, recreation, luxuries will be guaranteed to be cut. But also vitals like food and clothing are on the table. Where is Obama on this issue?
His only solution for energy had been to invest in all of these bankrupt solar companies — but that has been an utter failure.
