Senators to push for $100 gas rebate checks
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Most American taxpayers would get $100 rebate checks to offset the pain of higher pump prices for gasoline, under an amendment Senate Republicans hope to bring to a vote Thursday.
What's the catch?
However, the GOP energy package may face tough sledding because it also includes a controversial proposal to open part of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska to oil exploration
Of course. Congratulations America, the people you voted into office think you can be bought for $100 bucks.
And does anyone remember way back before the Earth changed on 9-11-01 when President buy-my-love sent everyone $3-500 smackers because having a surplus of cash was such a bad thing?
How did that turn out?

I don't even know what that number is.
And where is the golden goose crapping out all this money? The city of New Orleans is running out of rebuilding money (all the better for private investors to come in and steal public lands for nothing) and the war in Iraq costs about a billion a month or something and this is thier big idea to help us out?
Sorry senators, buying off the American people with a few bucks so your oil executive buddies can continue to make the highest profits ever recorded isn't going to work. Shit your base of half-ton pickup truck with gunracks drivers will barely be able to get a tank and half out of your c-note.
People will buy that about as much as the crazy Wall Street Journal lady (not Peggy Noonan, another one) on Jon Stewart's show last night that tried to tell people the high price of oil was due to ethanol!
