Thought we were done with high energy prices?


Remember how George Bush took a lot of heat over high gasoline prices?

Prices have tumbled from those $4/gallon days but they’re on their way back up, and with help from our democrat-controlled Congress.

The Heritage Foundation has done an analysis of the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009. and here’s what it has found:

“Gasoline costs will rise $118 annually for a typical four-person household once the bill's provisions take effect in 2012.”

There’s more.

“The bill likely would reduce coal use and replace it with more expensive options for producing electricity. The costs would filter down to consumers and boost electric bills by $235 in 2012, rising to $468 by 2035. That's a 90 percent increase over current rates.”

Hope and change.

Elections matter.

You wanted Democrats in control.
You got it.
