High Gas Prices Caused by Oil Companies and Wall Street Speculators
This is a no-brainer of course. And finally the public is seeing through all the Rightwing/Corporate smoke and mirrors. The “Drill Here Drill Now” inbreds are vastly outnumbered by people with IQs HIGHER than their shoe sizes.
According to a CNN poll, 89% of Americans blamed oil companies for higher prices. 61% said oil companies deserve “a great deal” of blame; 27% assigned “some” blame to the oil industry.
90% are blaming Wall Street speculators for higher gas prices. Speculators deserve “a great deal” of blame according to 59%; and “some” blame according to 31%.
These results cut across all political lines. A majority of Democrats, Republicans, Liberals and Conservatives all said oil companies and speculators deserve a great deal of blame. Among self-identified Tea Partiers, 40% blamed oil companies and speculators.
Meanwhile Congressional Republicans, with their ongoing devotion to “The American People,” are fighting valiantly against ALL attempts to regulate oil speculators. And they're going to make sure their oil pimps will keep getting jillions of dollars in taxpayer handouts. Aw come on, they’re just fulfilling their campaign promises to The American People.
