House Passes Energy Bill House Offers Handjob to Corporate Interests

Link

Let's see...


I'm trying to figure out just exactly why this is a good thing. How does this benefit anyone but the energy corporations? Fortunately, the House has passed a similar bill before only to have it die in the Senate. But this all makes me wonder... How many times can the Republicans fuck their constituents before they're held accountable?

All those Bush voters; the Nascar dads, the security moms, the evangelicals; they aren't benefiting from this kind of policy. Joe Lunchbox; who lives in a trailer, works at the factory, has a gun rack in his truck and a "Support Our Troops" magnet on the tailgate; is getting nothing from the Bush administration except empty promises of a brighter tomorrow. Meanwhile, the fat cats and bigwigs at Exxon, Chevron, Pfizer, and MBNA are rolling in it. They're up to their eyes in tax-breaks and incentives. They're in so deep they're practically drowning.

But the average Bush voters don't see it. They're sleeping with the enemy and they don't even know it. How long before America wakes the fuck up? How long before the flock turns on its master? How long before the peasants revolt?

Soon, I hope.
