Oil prices are not Taxes!!


Over the past 2 days, I heard Treasury Secretary John Snow, CNBC commentator James Cramer, and several other heads engage in Orwellian Newspeak, claiming: “OIL PRICES ARE A TAX ON CONSUMERS .”

I’ve addressed this extensively in the past, and you can (and should) read it here:
Oil price rises are not tax increases

Enough of this nonsense!
