This is wonderful news from President Obama. He is going to call for a $10.00 a barrel tax on oil. He claims that the oil companies will pay it, but the reality is that the cost will be passed on to consumers in the form of higher prices for gas and plastics and food. The food prices will go up because the costs of transporting food to grocery stores will go up.
This comes on the heels of President Obama’s aggressive stance on gun control and his desire to take executive action to stop people from being able to buy guns.
I think every right thinking American in the country should thank President Obama. Forcing the Democrats to campaign on taking away guns and increasing taxes is just the greatest thing ever — for the Republican nominee.
Thank you, Mr. President.
