John Dingell's Deadly Idea

During any election cycle, the populace must choose among political candidates, hoping that the candidate chosen will represent the public's views. Often, it doesn't happen. Candidates make promises, then, when elected, promptly ignore the public that elected them.

Here we have a case, well before the election, where the candidate makes a bone-headed proposal clearly designed to hurt the public he serves.

Such is the case of John Dingell (D-MI).

Today, the (dis) honorable Mr. Dingell stated that he wants to see Americans, who are already being strangled by much-too-high gas prices, pay a $0.50 more per gallon tax. All in the name of the saving the planet from those dreaded humans.

As this country is in the midst of economically calamitous times, Mr. Dingell's proposal is, at a minimum, irresponsible. More accurately, however, Mr. Dingell's proposal is a malicious idea designed to hurt American and, especially, his Michigan constituents.

As Michigan struggles more than most states to survive, its ailing auto industry saddled with the United Auto Workers (UAW) and sinking into oblivion, the last thing Michiganders need is a representative that is seeking to destroy more of their jobs. What's more, as American's, we don't need any more "representatives" in Congress that want to harm Americans.

This November, Michiganders need to recall this would-be destroyer of jobs from Washington permanently.

Vote Dingall Out, Michiganders!
