Gas prices have hit us hard and fast, but rest assured the White House is determined to find just who is to blame! Once again having no fault of their own, the administration has put their big guns on the case. Attorney General Eric Holder announced last week that he’s formed the ‘Oil and Gas Price Fraud Working Group’ in order to monitor oil and gas markets for ‘potential violations of criminal or civil laws.’ Thank goodness! All we need is another group to give the appearance to the American people that their best interests are being served.
And who better to do so than “representatives from the Department of Justice, the National Association of Attorneys General, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Federal Trade Commission, the Department of the Treasury, the Federal Reserve Board, the Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as the Departments of Agriculture and Energy.”
"If illegal conduct is responsible for increasing gas prices, state and federal authorities should take swift action," Holder said in a statement. Sean is furious that the White House is so desperate to find somebody to use as a scapegoat for the high price of oil they are going so far as to have Holder saying oil companies are somehow committing fraud in oil markets. It’s time to quit playing the blame game, take a good look in the mirror…and drill in ANWAR.
