Now I know why millions of Americans are drinking too much. In the last three years since Obama took office, nearly everything has gone up in price. Gas prices have doubled and are climbing exponentially. Utility costs have risen an amazing amount. Food prices have gone through the roof. Even clothing prices have risen. Home heating prices for oil and gas have risen by leaps and bounds.
And what has our esteemed president done about it?
Essentially he has done nothing since he became president, except to campaign to become president again. Obama has not rallied the United States to try harder, he has managed to make millions of Americans dependent on the government.
Currently, Obama is saying he has done many things for America. Obama is once again campaigning to become president for four more years. He is saying unemployment has gone down, while in reality the unemployment rate is at an all time high of 15 percent. The statistics are not including people who are not collecting unemployment anymore, and millions of people who have given up looking for a job.
When President Bush left office 3 years ago, average gas prices in the United States were about $1.80 a gallon. Currently they are at a staggering $3.69 and are climbing to new historic highs.
Gas prices will very soon climb to over $4.00 a gallon and then continue climbing to an unfathomable $5.00 a gallon. And what has President Obama done to help bring oil and gas prices down?
In fact, he has helped gas prices to rise. How you might be saying? Obama just recently vetoed a bill to allow a pipeline running oil from Canada to Texas. He has also turned down other bills allowing for gas/oil exploration.
With Iran and Iraq holding most of the world's oil and gas reserves, that means Iranian and Iraqi billionaires are getting richer. They are currently cutting several countries off from receiving their oil and gas. Just recently they cut off Britain and France from obtaining their oil/gas.
When this happens to America, what will happen then?
America will be crippled without having pipelines, and oil/gas digging already in place. We Americans will be paying even higher prices at the pumps. People will freeze in their homes, possibly many people dying from a lack of oil and gas to use in their homes.
I realize that this is a very negative way of looking at the American economy, but this is what is happening already.
Americans are paying historically higher gas prices, higher food prices, higher clothing and higher home, and business heating costs.
Americans are paying more money than ever for what we used to take for granted.
