Obama: “I want a $10/barrel oil fe…” Congress (interrupting): “No.”

Seriously, why did CNBC even bother reporting this, let alone make it a ‘BREAKING’ story? “President Barack Obama will propose a $10 per barrel charge on oil to fund clean transportation projects as part of his final budget request next week, the White House said Thursday.”  I’m sure that Obama would like a pony, too.  Heck, THAT Congress might give him. Shoot, I’d sign off on giving the President a whole horse show if he’d just play with it until his term is up and left policy to people who understand the basic concept…

    This is such an important concept. I think every single person who interviews Hillary and The Bernster over the next few months should see what they think about it. In Detail.

      For that, we’d need a fully functional fourth estate, not the boot-polishing lickspittle quislings currently pretending they’re doing their jobs.

        Sorry, hit submit too soon. I left out juice-box-mafia, emotionally stunted, incurious, and a few others that will break Moe’s profanity/obscenity rules.

    Because the one thing every member of Congress wants to do is go home and explain why they raised the gas tax during an election year.
