The Washington Post has a story today on the national average for a gallon of gasoline, which is currently $3.57. That is basically double what it was when Obama took office, according to Politifact. I wonder why the media and Democrats are not making a bigger deal out of this? It used to be a terrible thing. Right? Remember when Nancy Pelosi attacked President Bush for high gas prices?
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi wrapped up her San Francisco holiday weekend Monday with a blast at President Bush. The topic — the price of oil. Gasoline has more than doubled since the Bush administration took office she says.
San Francisco’s Meals on Wheels turns out more than 1,300 meals a day to seniors. But now there has been a dramatic rise in expenses.
“Our costs have gone up 40 percent, but even more so, the indirect costs of driving food costs is really taking a big hit on us. Almost a nine percent increase in food costs in just one year,” says Ashley McCumber of Meals on Wheels.
Rising gas prices affect groups like the Boys and Girls Club that is cutting programs to save costs, a small businessman who finds himself being priced out of competition or a caregiver who can’t afford gas to get to clients.
And for other Meals on Wheels programs around the bay, hikes in fuel costs have meant fewer deliveries. They can’t find volunteers who can afford to fill their tanks.
I guess that high gas prices no longer adversely affect:
*the San Franscisco Meals on Wheels program
*the price of food
*groups like the Boys and Girls Club that is cutting programs to save costs
*a small businessman who finds himself being priced out of competition
*or a caregiver who can’t afford gas to get to clients
Nope. Magically, none of those are affected by the high price of gas now! Isn’t it great?!
In the past, we were told that the “two oil men in the Whit House” were the reason for high gas prices. What is their excuse now?
This is quite possibly the most ridiculous thing that has EVER been spoken. “Fiscal responsibility is a part of who we are?” “Pay-as-you-go…..do not add to the deficit.”
Nancy Pelosi is an idiot unlike any we’ve seen in modern history.
Farewell to the most liberal, most partisan and most
insane disliked Speaker of the House in American history. Hopefully, our country will be able to recover from the damage you’ve done. Some parting words from Nancy on her way out:
“As we begin the 112th Congress, the number one priority of House Democrats will continue to be putting Americans to work. Each new proposal will be measured by a simple test: does it create jobs? Does it strengthen America’s middle class? And does it reduce the deficit? When our Republican colleagues put forward solutions to the problems facing Americans that meet these tests, they will find in Democrats a willing partner.”
This is amazing coming from a person, and a party, that has done nothing to create jobs, strengthen the middle class or reduce the deficit since they’ve been in power.
And finally, Nancy Pelosi used her last day as speaker to defend
health care reform Obamacare, calling Republicans’ plans to repeal the law “very serious violence to the national debt and deficit.”
“If every American was very, very pleased with his or her health insurance, it still would have been necessary for us to pass the health reform care bill, because we could not sustain the system……The cost of health care, for individual families, for small businesses for corporate America, for our economy, and also for the federal budget, was unsustainable. And that’s why, this comprehensive health care reform, one of the main reasons it was necessary.”
Yeah, I’m sure that is the reason why you liberals wanted to pass Obamacare….to save money. Like saving money is something you’ve ever cared about.
Good riddance, Nancy!
Remember when back in 2006 when new Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, said she was going to drain the swamp ? It makes me laugh out loud to watch those words come out of this woman’s mouth.
It’s amazing to see the rise in the number of ethically-challenged Democrats in the short time that Pelosi has been Speaker of the House. None more blatant than the laundry list of ethics violations by Charles Rangel, who writes federal tax laws as the Head of the House Ways and Means Committee.
Recently, Nancy Pelosi actually defended the ethics violations by Charles Rangel, claiming that his misdeeds have not jeopardized our country in any way.
I can’t wait until the day she is thrown out. She is an embarrassment.
