Obama and Pelosi: Imperfect Together

On April 24, 2006, Nancy Pelosi stated, “Democrats have a commonsense plan to help bring down skyrocketing gas prices by cracking down on price gouging, rolling back the billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies, tax breaks and royalty relief given to big oil and gas companies, and increasing production of alternative fuels.”

More than two years later, and that commonsense plan still hasn’t been revealed.

Meanwhile, gas prices continue to rise. When the Democrats took control of congress in January 2007, the average price per gallon of gas was $2.33.

When I filled up yesterday, I paid more than $4.00 per gallon.

The Pelosi gas promise, which helped Democrats sweep into power, was just another myth. Playing on the hopes and fears of people for political gain.

Sad and typical.

Think about that when Obama promises all sorts of change.
