We'd do well to remember what his Energy Secretary said in 2008.
“Somehow,” Chu said, “we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”Folks seem to believe that this isn't the President's fault, but this soundbite won't go away. Then candidate Obama promised us in 2008 that he would make energy prices skyrocket, and so far, he's kept his promise.
You know, when I was asked earlier about the issue of coal, uh, you know — Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers.He's keeping that promise and energy prices have gone up tremendously since he's been in office.
He promised us he'd do it, and he's doing it. The sooner we get this pretender out of office, the better off we'll all be.
