He explains that his plan will cause energy prices to “skyrocket”.
It will hurt people, he says, but it will benefit The Economy. Wrap your head around that cognitive dissonance, if you will.
Of course, there’s a simple explanation. Obama considers “The Economy” to be government’s cash flow situation. So if it hurts people, no problem! The government will still have enough money to enact a liberal-left policy, with enough left over to redistribute so more people live just above the poverty line.
Democrats: No rich people outside of government/entertainment industries allowed. Smaller gap between rich and poor just means everyone is poor.
I now await Democratic/Obama ridicule for pointing this out.
