Comments For Idiots who believe in Democrats
This is how stupid Democrats are, they believe that if you raise the price of gas, they will save money, but the savings are in Health, well if you are young and have a good job, than maybe you can save money, but the older you get your health penalties will go up, so where is the savings.
Does this mean that they are going to do the same thing with pollen, dust in the home and out side by getting rid of all trees and plants, and cover up any thing that could stir up dust, so there is no Oxygen, or no where for water to go except the rivers and Oceans not the water table.
Has any one found out who is going to profit on Obamacare, or who is going to profit if the price of gas goes up, the people who have stock in them, but at this time it is in some one else s name until retirement come along, and then it will come out that it is under their families name, or under a maiden name.
Lets take AARP, did they back Obamacare, are they really for American Citizens, or for them selves.

Senators push Obama to propose clean gasoline rules
By Timothy Gardner | Reuters
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A group of Democratic senators on Thursday will urge the Obama administration to propose rules to cut smog-forming emissions from gasoline, regulations opposed by many Republicans.
The lawmakers, led by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand from New York, want the Environmental Protection Agency to propose rules that would slash the sulfur content in gasoline this year and to finalize them next year.
“Tier 3 will substantially reduce harmful pollutants that are responsible for health-related ailments such as heart attacks, premature death, asthma attacks and other chronic lung diseases,” Gillibrand, a member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, said in a letter obtained by Reuters that will be sent to President Barack Obama later on Thursday.
The rules, which had been expected to be proposed early in 2012, would require the sulfur content of gasoline to be cut to 10 parts per million, down from the current 30 ppm standard. Republican lawmakers have opposed the rules saying they would add costs to refiners and put jobs at risk.
The American Petroleum Institute, the main energy industry lobbying group, has said the rules could increase operating costs for refiners by up to 9 cents a gallon.
Ed Whitfield, a Republican in the House of Representatives, introduced a bill this year to stop the EPA from issuing the rules.
The EPA, however, has testified before Congress the price of cleaner gasoline would be closer to a penny a gallon, and even those costs would be greatly surpassed by savings in healthcare bills from reductions in lung-harming smog.
The senators quoted in the letter a study released in June by Navigant Consulting that said the rules could reduce health care costs by $5 billion or $6 billion a year by 2020 and double that by 2030.
The rules will also create over 30,000 new jobs over three years for installation and operation of equipment at the nation’s oil refineries, the senators said in the letter.
The letter signed by 13 senators include Dick Durbin, a close Obama ally from Illinois, Joe Lieberman, a Connecticut independent who caucuses with Democrats, and Oregon’s Jeff Merkley.
A health advocate hoped the pressure would push the clean gasoline rules forward.
“This letter should send a strong signal to EPA and the White House that this should be a high priority, not something stuck in the bowels of the bureaucracy,” said Frank O’Donnell, president of Clean Air Watch.
Before the election early this month, the Obama administration delayed several rules on emissions and oil and natural gas operations.
Now, the administration will likely roll out rules, many of which have been required by court orders, analysts say.
