House GOP challenges Pelosi for gas price plan

House Republican leaders on Tuesday challenged Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to release a plan to lower gas prices that they say Democrats touted when they were in the minority.

"Two years ago this week, you stated that House Democrats had a 'commonsense plan' to 'lower gas prices,' " the letter said. "In light of the skyrocketing gasoline prices affecting working families and every sector of our struggling economy, we are writing today to respectfully request that you reveal this 'commonsense plan' so we can begin work on responsible solutions to help ease this strain."

In a press release dated April 24, 2006, Pelosi said:

"Democrats have a common-sense plan to help bring down skyrocketing gas prices by cracking down on price gouging, rolling back the billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies, tax breaks and royalty relief given to big oil and gas companies, and increasing production of alternative fuels."

If you think these above things will bring down gasoline prices, please write to me and tell me how stupid you are.

FUN FACT: The price of gasoline has gone up $1.18 a gallon since Democrats took over Congress in January 2007.

We're blaming trans fat on Big Oil. Aren't you keeping up with everything?
