Working families & small businesses will be hurt by green policy

To the editor,

I have to complement Don Ewing on a fine informative letter here in the March 10 Sun. In his letter he exposes the fallacy that the president is trying maintain, that he is not responsible for rising costs of our energy. His energy policy's certainly are the major reason gas prices, heating oil prices and diesel fuel prices have doubled during his tenure in the White House.

What is it with this guy? Everything that he has done that goes wrong is always someone ...

To the editor,

I have to complement Don Ewing on a fine informative letter here in the March 10 Sun. In his letter he exposes the fallacy that the president is trying maintain, that he is not responsible for rising costs of our energy. His energy policy's certainly are the major reason gas prices, heating oil prices and diesel fuel prices have doubled during his tenure in the White House.

What is it with this guy? Everything that he has done that goes wrong is always someone else's fault. It was Bush's fault, it's the oil companies fault, it's turmoil in the middle east's fault. What ever happened to the buck stops here motto of President Truman?

This president is so fixated on making green energy economically competitive, which it is not unless he can tilt the playing field, that he is willing to throw we the American people under the bus. Making this country into a European style socialist democracy is a bad idea in the first place. Have readers read about the just agreed to bail out of Greece? It's scary! That's what America has to look forward to if Obama gets a second term. Gas prices at $9 or $10/gal. Heating oil doubled, electric rates doubled and the costs of all goods and services rising in harmony with ever increasing costs of it all.

And who gets hurt by it? Not the president and the Washington big shots, not the CEO's or bank presidents, it will be us. We the people, we the poor, the sick, the elderly living on fixed incomes. Working families, small business will be forced to choose between this necessity or that, and will still fall short with each successive paycheck. IS THIS THE CHANGE WE COULD BELIEVE IN? Is this what Mr. Obama has in mind or is he a victim the Peter Principle. Are the unintended consequences he did not foresee going to cripple our nation and make our children and grandchildren economic slaves to China? If he has his way it will. Time for people in this country to start asking, what can I do for my country not what can my country do for me?

Perhaps Democrats can remember when such words were spoken and applauded by them in the past?
