Ok so it's not so shocking.
What do you think about this?
A tax increase on this order would be politically treacherous for Democratic leaders in Congress — a gas tax hike was one of the reasons they lost control of the House and Senate in the 1994 elections. I’m not sure if hiking them back up is what the American people had envisioned with “change we can believe in.” So how does Congress get around this? The same way they do everything else.
“Instead of calling it a gas tax, call it a carbon tax,” Whittington said. “As long as we label it as something else we may have the momentum and acceptance to move forward.”
I must say, Mr. Whittington does have one heck of a brass set on him. We know Congress lies to us all the time, but this guy actually comes out in public and admits that Congress should lie to our faces in

Why not? The president did it all through his speech the other night! New kind of politics my rear end! I liked the man when he first came out but the more he speaks the more the BS flows and it looks like his administration and "colleagues" in the house and on the hill are going to take ques from him!

No there won't kab. They have deserted the field. They have decidied the best way to deal with us "ignorant" NObama people is to just ignore us! Way to prove us wrong! I guess searching out "the (questionable)truth" ,as they see it, is too difficult. Mainly b/c it isn't there, so they can't be bothered to do it and respond!
