Thank you Barack Obama! You A$$hole!
Sounds like they will be instituting some additional public aid program to help the poor people pay their electric bills. We can’t allow them to suffer like this.
‘Under my plan, electricity prices would necessarily skyrocket’
-Barak Obama 2008
No surprise here. The regime is filled with green environmental freaks from the State Department to DOD who are de-industrialzing America. Look at our pathetic Energy Dept. website:
0bama talked about “fundamentally transforming America.” The brain-dead dolts who comprise 53% of the population never asked “into what?”
But those of us who paid attention and listened to the “necessarily skyrocket” type statements knew exactly what he intended to transform America into.
That can’t be repeated enough. This is part of Obama’s plans for us.
Isn’t a bit odd that our government does not include the price of energy nor of that of food when it calculates inflation?
Easier to trick the low information fools.
