This is why I’ll vote Libertarian in the next election:

Every American taxpayer would get a $100 rebate check to offset the pain of higher pump prices for gasoline, under an amendment Senate Republicans hope to bring to a vote Thursday.

Does anybody remember when Republicans talked about eliminating whole federal departments?

Of course, windfall taxes are just as stupid. How does taking money from Exxon and putting in the federal coffers help ease my pain at the gas pump? Many of today’s politicians appear to be more concerned with being in power than doing the right thing for country.
