The Revolution Will be Tweeted

Never in my weirdest nightmares did I expect the day would come when I would urge Congress #dontgo.

While I was buried under a client project, a revolution of sorts started in the U.S. House of Representatives. Speaker Nancy Pelosi closed up shop and hit the road for her book tour without allowing a vote on off-shore oil drilling, which would help increase the oil supply, which would help reduce gas prices. Unfortunately for Speaker Pelosi and her party, it would also tick off their environmentalist allies.

It’s hard to be a liberal Democrat. Your utopian fantasies keep crashing into this harsh thing called reality, and the middle-class families who suffer for your untenable policies resent being sacrificed on the altar of special-interest lobbies.

So, when Democrats faced the unhappy choice of voting for families and freedom or for greenies and government, they tucked tail and ran.

House Republicans stayed, and gave floor speeches on the need for relaxing the regulations that keep American families paying record prices at the pump.

Naturally, the Democrats weren’t about to let American families know how the Republicans were trying to pull the government off their backs. Not only did they turn off the cameras, but they even turned out the lights.

And so the revolution couldn’t be televised. It was tweeted instead. In a triumph for the power of social media to promote truly representative government despite the efforts of modern-day oligarchs, folks on the floor started getting the word out via twitter. A grassroots movement was born, and grew faster than corn.

Even I wondered whether the Republican Party was coming back to me.

Then five Republican Senators joined five Democrat Senators in a scheme that combines all the prosperity-crushing lunacy of wealth transfers and regulation in one proposal. This Gang of Ten proposes limiting off-shore drilling to four states and eliminating tax provisions that allow oil companies to write off the costs of expanding refinery capacity. And what do they plan to do with the booty from this increased plunder of the nation’s energy providers? Create new subsidies for renewable and alternative fuels.

But House Republicans are standing firm, demanding that Speaker Pelosi call Congress back to vote on relaxing the regulations keeping middle-class families from summer vacations, even as House Democrats and Barack Obama enjoy theirs.

Thanks, House Republicans. You’ve done your Party proud.

  2. “Drilling would increase the oil supply, which would bring gasoline and jet fuel prices down, which would reduce the costs of transportation”

    This is a sadly laughable statement at best. You can’t truly believe this. Prices are up because that’s where the rich who control these factors want them. They saw an opportunity in the Iraq war and ran with it. Anything else is bluff and smokescreen.

  3. Mr. Trenn, thanks for your question. Drilling would increase the oil supply, which would bring gasoline and jet fuel prices down, which would reduce the costs of transportation, which would help middle-class families afford to travel on vacation.

  4. Uh, Ms. Carbone. What do you mean by: “But House Republicans are standing firm, demanding that Speaker Pelosi call Congress back to vote on relaxing the regulations keeping middle-class families from summer vacations, even as House Democrats and Barack Obama enjoy theirs.”

    How will drilling (which I support) helpmiddle class families enjoy summer vacations?
