High Gasoline Prices: Is Speaker Hastert a Socialist?
KLo suggests that Senator Kennedy is a socialist for telling Russert:
And he ought to activate and call the Federal Trade Commission-which is basically a sleepy organization that has given an interim report in terms of price-fixing and gouging-he ought to get them off and have them working seven days a week, 24/7, to make sure that we know exactly who is price-gouging.
OK, I’m not convinced there is price-fixing or gouging either, but look at what else I found over at the Corner from KLo. It seems she is happy when Speaker Hastert writes:
Therefore, we believe that Federal law enforcement agencies and regulators should take every available step to ensure that all Federal laws protecting American consumers from price-fixing, collusion, gouging and other anti-competitive practices are vigorously enforced. We respectfully request that you direct the Attorney General and the Chairman of the Federal Trade Commission to investigate any potential collusion, price-fixing or gouging in the sale or distribution of gasoline, petroleum distillates or ethanol in wholesale and retail markets.
Update: Given the President Bush has decided we need to investigate the allegations of price gouging Billmon puts forth a must read attack on the Bush the Chicken S&*t.
