mccain's $1 million gas deal  

Posted by SjP in ,

I don't have to tell you that the price of gas just keeps on going up. The rising price of oil impacts every aspect of our lives. It is a vicious, vicious cycle that results in ridiculous prices of food, clothing, and basic necessities. We're all feeling it and there appears to be no light at the end of the tunnel.

Several weeks ago, Senator McCain proposed the elimination of the gas tax for the summer. Giving us a break of about $.18 cents a gallon or $30 a year. Now, he's talking about off-shore drilling. Why?

Well the
Center for Responsive Politics reports that McCain has accepted over $1 million from the oil and gas industries. It appears that several of his top advisers have lobbied for big oil. Its no wonder why his energy and environmental plans or non-plans are always in the best interest of the Shells, Exxons, and Mobiles.

Center for American Progress Action Fund further reports that McCain has received millions in donations from these very same companies that has continued to support the Bush administration.

This video from provides proof of McCain's connection to big oil. Please watch and share!

Once again, no surprise here. What is surprising is that McCain is attempting to front that he is indeed different from George Bush.

Yeah, he looks different, yeah he did his military service and yeah, he's not as hated (yet), but therein lies the end of the distinction.

We can simply kick back and wait for the unknown realities of McCain to roll in.

Eliminating a tax on gas is not going to have a real change. This can only be solved be changing the way we live. It seems now more people will have to get used to public transportation. While the expense is hurting everyone no one can deny that it will force a change that will ultimately be good for the environment.

Sheila - its almost like they are clones of each other. Idiots!

Renee - yes, we will be forced to change the way we live because no one will be able to afford to by the gas to get the work. So instead of paying $100 a week for gas we'll be paying $250 for a bus pass. Still cheaper and Exxon, Mobile, and Shell will only make 20 million a year instead of 40. That in and of itself proves that there is no reason at all for us to be payin 4 & a quarter for a gallon of gas.

Much obliged ya'll for stopping by.
