The video below is a spoof but it has an element of truth to it. What Paul Ryan's Budget Plan does… It takes a look at YOU & ME and sees us as leaches, bloodsuckers who suck profit away from the rich.
Yepper, that's the GOP in a nutshell.
Secret meetings between the oil giant Shell and President Obama resulted in an announcement this week that Obama is fast-tracking new offshore oil drilling on the Atlantic coast, Gulf of Mexico, and opening up a 24-million-acre wilderness area in Alaska to oil drilling.
