REAL REPUBLICANS FOR REAL CHANGE

LUGAR OUT OF HIS MIND TIME TO GO

Posted by zeakster on February 1, 2009

WASHINGTON – Every gallon of gas should cost $1 more, Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., said, so Americans buy less and the country imports less foreign-produced oil.

 

In a column in today’s Washington Post, Lugar endorsed the proposal of a conservative columnist, who advocated the $1-a-gallon tax last month.

 

Charles Krauthammer said the $1 tax should be returned to people through lower payroll taxes or higher Social Security payments so their out-of-pocket expenses are the same.

 

“Americans sent nearly $430 billion to other countries in 2008 for the cost of imported oil – an amount equal to almost half of President Obama’s stimulus package,” Lugar wrote. “Those hundreds of billions should be spent to build a new energy economy here, not shipped to dangerous regimes overseas.”

    Lugar voted to confirm Holder as AG. He and many other Republicans have sold out their constituents once again. I called to ask that he not only vote against Holder, but do what ever he could to stop the confirmation. Holder does not believe people have Rights given to them by God and affirmed in the Bill of Rights. Apparently neither does Lugar. Holder has in practice violated Americans 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 6th amendment rights while being a top henchman under Reno. He has submitted briefs to the Court arguing that the Bill of Rights do not apply to individuals. These are scary times my friend.
