Crazy Wasserman Schultz Says GOP Hopefuls Will Do Nothing to Help Lower Price of Gas: “All They Want to Do Is More Drilling”
Today Wasserman Schultz said Republican hopefuls will do nothing to help lower the price of gas. “All they would do is more drilling.”
And we all know drilling will not bring down gas prices, right?
The Hill reported, via Lucianne:
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Thursday that GOP White House hopefuls will do nothing to help consumers at the gasoline pump.
The Florida congresswoman’s comments come hours before President Obama is slated to give an energy speech in Miami aimed partly at rebutting GOP political attacks over rising gasoline prices. She said the GOP plans would keep the U.S. dependent on oil.
“The Republican field, like Mitt Romney, thinks that we just need to remain tethered and dependent on foreign oil because all they would do is more and more drilling, which is a very shortsighted approach and it would do nothing to prevent people who are struggling to put $80 into their gas tanks to be able to make sure that that’s more affordable,” Wasserman Schultz said on MSNBC.
“And that is another example of how they are economically out of touch,” she said.
Policymakers across the political spectrum, especialy in the near-term, face few options to substantially affect pump prices that are tethered to oil prices set on global markets.
Democrats are very upset that Republicans won’t join them in supporting their bankrupt green energy projects.
