"However, the GOP energy package may face tough sledding because it also includes a controversial proposal to open part of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska to oil exploration, which most Democrats and some moderate Republicans oppose."
That's what it's about. Republicans always try to sneak things no one wants in with grandeous promises of something good.
With a record deficit already, do we REALLY need to be giving everyone $100? If they would just make the rich actually PAY TAXES then they could give the families that need it free gas.

And the Republicans know this will fail, they only want to claim the Democrats stopped them from helping families pay for gas.
These Republicans are destroying our economy with all of this political positioning.

sure, let's screw the environment and the budget just so people can save a few bucks on lower gas prices. Smart idea.

That's insane. Give a little taxpayer money back to taxpayers so they can continue to pay inflated gas prices. The problem is the oil companies, not over-taxation. Just another example of taxpayers carrying the corporations on our backs. :rolleyes:
