Republican Senators have a plan for the high gas prices: bribe the public. Seriously--they want to send all taxpayers $100 each to offset the high price of gas. Because that's really the energy problem--taxes are too high. Isn't that their answer to everything? Lower taxes! When you're just a hammer, everything see is a nail.
[UPDATE: Plus, attached to the bill is authorization to drill in the Arctic Wildlife Refuge. Hoping for $100 we will turn the other way?]
Meanwhile, let alone the fact that it won't help that much...where is the money going to come from?
