Energy Secretary Stephen Chu has already stated that he wants Gasoline Prices to reach the levels of Europe. On Tuesday Chu did something that is rare among Obama officials. He told the truth. When asked if the goal of the Energy Department was to get the price of gasoline Down, Chu replied:
“But is the overall goal to get our price” of gasoline down, asked Nunnelee.
“No, the overall goal is to decrease our dependency on oil, to build and strengthen our economy,”
Well we have to give Chu credit for being candid. He wants higher gas prices to justify giving $500,000,000 bailouts to rich Obama contributors such as George Kaiser and the Solyndra fiasco. Chu is actually a bit refreshing compared to the lying Eric Holder who still can’t tell us about Fast and Furious over a year after a U.S. Border Control Agent was murdered.
Remember Liberals don’t care about other people’s pain. What $8.00 gallon gasoline does to the average working stiff is just collateral damage to an appartchik like Chu. The damage being done to independent truck drivers can’t be imagined. Liberals want control of the economy so they can dole out sweetheart deals like wind turbine manufacturing to political cronies.
