To the editor:
Our new Democratic Congress is voting on new standards to require auto manufacturers to meet average fuel economy of 35 miles per gallon. This includes cars, trucks and SUVs. They have attempted to raise oil taxes and use the money to promote renewable fuels and clean energy programs. This all while Democrats continue to block Arctic National Wildlife Refuge drilling.
As expected, this is the initial result of the Al Gore-induced hysteria about global warming that Democrats are eager to use to control how we live our lives. Will the Democratic lawmakers pushing these new standards drive what we are forced to drive? Will they park their jets? I doubt it.
