Offshore Drilling Vote Comes and Goes

Is gas cheaper yet?

Didn't think so.

It's worth noting, however, that after all the tears and heartbreak Republican's feigned over not getting this vote, it sure looked like they wanted to avoid it today.

Perhaps it's because (thanks to a roll-over congress, and a vision-less speaker) they've now lost 90% of their downticket campaign strategy.

When this one goes no where, let's all remember to thank Rob Bishop for his grand leadership. Seriously, Rob. We owe you.

  1. Of course this vote didn't affect gas prices. This bill was a ruse which would have had the practical effect of opening up approximately no offshore areas to drilling. The Dems wanted to pretend they were rescinding the offshore drilling ban.
