Who comes up with this shit?
Senate Republicans want to give taxpayers $100 to counter high gas prices. Gee, thanks, Senate Republicans. Perhaps it’s been a while since you’ve actually purchased your own gas but when gas is $3 a gallon, $100 only gets you thirty three gallons of gas. For me, that’s a little more than two full tanks.
So, that takes me through May, if I don’t go anywhere too out of the way. Then what? Gas will be miraculously cheap again? I doubt it.
Maybe they think that, if they give us each $100, we’ll spend it on booze, thus temporarily not giving a shit how much gas costs*.
*On the other hand, if we each get $100 to spend on gas, some of you could spend it on driving to Nashville and giving me birthday smooches.
All, right, then, Senate Republicans! Let’s get this passed and the checks issued before the 22nd.
