Re: Obamanomics adds 56.5 cents to the cost of every gallon of gas
I swear some of these stories are too complicated to be meaningful and are designed only to scare you enough to make you stay tuned through the commercials. They must come from a "porn star name generator" style mad-libs form. Let's see, the ingredients would be:
1) Some cutesy made up word with Obama spliced into it, Obamacare/Obamanomics/etc..
2) Something folks are sensitive about, gas prices, health care, security, taxes...
And conclude that...
3) Something dire is happening to your money/rights/children's education/ etc.. Never mind that these things are effected by dozens of other factors. Many of which have been policies or costs that have been in place since the Hoover administration.
And the cause is...
4) Some esoteric economic standard like currency convertibility. The news loves to say we're printing money that's not worth anything. Economists and world banks don't know anything!
Tax code that is aimed squarely at draining poor people of money they don't have.
Your government as an evil empire bent on growth at any cost. They might be onto something there, but it can't be the cause of everything!
