Tim Phillips, President of Americans for Prosperity has pretty much summed up Obama’s plan for the ruination of America. In my opinion he hits the nail squarely on dead center when he states in an online publication dated June 05, 2013 “Obama and his big-government allies are wasting YOUR money to prop up their failed energy policies!”
Since Obama became our president in 2009, he has been solely responsible for the increase in the cost of gasoline which was only $1.86 a gallon in 2008, the year of his lightning strike campaign, to the current $4.00 a gallon in many places around the country now in 2013, just five years later.
Phillips points out that Obama has “ignored the heavy toll gas prices have taken on American families like yours and mine. Instead, he continues to gamble your money away into failed programs and green stimulus spending.”
Obama’s support and financial backing of failed programs such as Solyndra where he flat out wasted a half billion dollars in order to pump up his friends and cronies is a good example of how he has worked against the American people who are now finding out about his bad investments.
The two executives of the Solyndra firm, Brian Harrison and W. G. Stover, who took the Fifth Amendment during a Congressional hearing have never spent a day in jail. After much hoopla and furor and Congressional investigations it was determined that the failure of Solyndra was chiefly due to the collapse of the solar panel market.
But this and other setbacks have not deterred Obama’s desires for “green” spending even though China has seemingly cornered the market on “green” production materials.
Returning to the conundrum of ever increasing gasoline prices it seems mystifying that the Obama Administration totally ignores the answers to the problem which are made clear to him that are right here at hand and waiting to be implemented. I’m talking about the Keystone XL Pipeline which could be replacing Middle East oil countries in nearly every American community at a great saving of American taxpayer dollars.
As Tim Phillips says in his online publication referred to above, “The Obama administration could easily help the economy by approving the now-infamous Keystone Pipeline, rolling back excessive regulations on coal plants, expanding offshore drilling, and opening up federal land to natural gas exploration. These are all proven sources of energy that would undoubtedly provide a boom of jobs and economic growth to America at a time when we desperately need it.”
Imagine that, ‘Jobs and economic growth’! But sadly, this is exactly what Obama doesn’t want. If this successful venture were placed in operation it could as stated, provide “a boom of jobs and economic growth to America” which would be counter productive to Obama’s plan to turn America into a Socialist-Communist country and surrender its sovereignty to the corrupt and greedy United Nations.
And as Phillips has stated, “instead of implementing these no-brainer solutions and proven sources of energy, President Obama and his big-government allies are wasting YOUR money to prop up their failed energy policies!
