I still want to kick Dem butt but this is at least a good try

House OKs 'outrageous gas prices' bill

WASHINGTON, May 23 (UPI) -- The U.S. House of Representatives Wednesday passed legislation authorizing the Federal Trade Commission to investigate and punish gasoline price gouging.

The bill's sponsor, Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., said the legislation would help stop "the truly outrageous prices we are seeing at the gas pump," The Detroit News reported.

"Today, every member has a choice," said Stupak. "Side with big oil or side with the consumers who are being ripped off at the gas pump."

And, of course, His Royal Monkeyness, Preznut Ash ... er, sorry, George the whatever ... says he'll veto it. He'll only veto GOOD things. I think someone needs to give him a bottle of Old Crow and let him get wasted so we can somehow get rid of all the people who let him boss them around.
