Obama's EPA - Attacking the Poor & Middle Class

Socialist President Obama's Gestapo Environmental Protection Agency has attacked the poor and middle class in America, once again, by adding new regulations that will cause the price of gas to go up about 10 cents a gallon.   Think about it, in buying one tank of gas a week, not uncommon, an extra 10 cents a gallon on gas is about $1.80, or $93.60 a year.   It does not sound like much; maybe a week's worth of groceries.

But that is just the beginning.   Artificially raising the price of gas means higher prices for everything since all goods and services ultimately involve using fuel to get the product or service to market.   Higher fuel prices naturally will be reflected in everything we buy.  Well dah!   The "rich" Obama is always talking about can take the hit; though it still takes money out of the economy that could have been spent on other things so it is a job killer.   However, the poor and the middle class Obama is always saying he supports, will experience a lower standard of living, which has been happening for years, as their buying power continues to erode.   Higher gas prices will hit the poor and the middle class like a ton of bricks. 

Obamanistas just do not understand that higher taxes and more regulations on all aspects of life are killing our economy.   We still have more than 20 million Americans that are either unemployed, under employed working part time that want full time work, or who have just given up looking for work altogether.   About 50 million Americans are now on Food Stamps presumably because they are increasingly poor and or because of fraud.  This should be no surprise since the poverty rate is up as a result of Obama's Socialist Schemes.  

Raising the cost of gasoline will do little to improve the environment and much to hurt the poor and the middle class.   Don't worry, Obama will figure out a way to put more of them on the dole to buy votes.  It is what it is.
