The Democrat Energy Plan: Nationalize Refineries
Yesterday, House Democrats unveiled their new brainiac energy "solution"--nationalizing refineries (actually, they stole the idea from Hugo Chavez). This, they think, will allow the government to "better control the flow of the oil supply." So let's recap: McCain and Bush say lift the ban on offshore drilling (which would directly result in more oil and cheaper prices). Meanwhile, the Democrats would rather steal oil refineries from the smart, capable people who run them now and hand them over to the same people who run the Senate Cafeteria. Sheer genius! If McCain brings us no other policy change except this one, he would be a good president, and I would gladly vote for him.
