Powerline sums up the facts.

SUMMARY

  • 91% of House Republicans have historically voted to increase the production of American-made oil and gas.
  • 86% of House Democrats have historically voted against increasing the production of American-made oil and gas.

The Democrats in Congress and those who voted for them have gotten their wish. Gas is a budget buster for most families. Hybrids and used gas sippers are high priced. Motorcycles are all over the roads. SUVs and trucks are just about impossible to sell. Independent truckers are going out of business. GM is shutting down several SUV and truck plants, adding shifts at car plants, and bringing the Chevy Volt to market sooner than planned. Corn ethanol has tripled the price of corn and doubled the price of other grains, causing domino effect price increases in all foods, leading to starvation worldwide.

Frankly, I don’t see how congressional Democrats can live with the guilt for their actions.
