The Energy Bill

On Monday the 8th of August, George W Bush took time from his "working" vacation in Crawford Texas so he could sign his highly touted corporate rewards laden energy bill into law by in Albuquerque New Mexico .

It should be remembered that this "important" legislation was originally intented to provide more tax cuts to the well connected energy companies than it was in direct costs to the US public over the next 10 years. But of course, the "fiscally conservative" Republican controlled legislature, with their Democrat minions did their best to insure that the US public will now have to pay even more for their government largess.

So, with the stroke of the poison pen, the American public can look forward to paying $24.9 billion for a energy bill that does little to alter the status quo of big government supporting big business.

See you at the pump!
