Billy Long wants to pump your gas: hopes you forget he voted to kill Medicare.

Billy Long and dang near every Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives voted to kill Medicare.

Oops! That didn't turn out so well, did it Billy.

Since that vote Billy has tried to deflect criticism from himself by blaming the newspaper (No live town hall meetings for Billy Long), issuing a press release on the flood waters in Branson (Flooding in the Seventh District prompts Billy Long to issue a press release), launching an attack on the war on consumers which seems more like an attack on the president (Billy Long says anybody would be a better president than Barak Obama)and now Billy wants to press the reset button (FEDUP Billy has no backbone, tries to distance himself from his vote to kill medicare).

Rapid Roberts, tomorrow, from 11 AM to Noon, Billy will pump your gas for you.

He says he wants to meet with families and individuals struggling with rising gas prices.

Long says he will personally pump gas for constituents as he listens to their concerns over rising energy costs and the economy.

“High gas prices are kicking the American people when they’re already down,” Long said in a news release. “When gas goes up, everything from buying groceries to going to work gets more expensive and puts a strain on families trying to make efnds meet. It is time for Congress to start listening to the people and take this problem seriously.”

It's hard to take Billy seriously when he sells out to auctioneers for $5,000 and puppy mill operators for $4,800. And we don't even know how much he sold out to the PGA for. This ain't nothing but a publicity stunt to try to take people's mind off Billy's vote to kill Medicare.

Billy not only voted to kill Medicare, he also voted to keep the big oil subsidies.

We're going to run out of oil sometime. Big oil knows this, so do most sensible thinkers.

They know that the supply of oil is finite. Once it's gone, it's gone and there goes their cash stream.

So what do they do? They raise the price of oil. We need gas. We're going to buy oil until it's all gone, no matter if it $3.73 a gallon or $9.55 a gallon. They want to make as much money as they can before the oil is all gone.

Remember, Billy Long voted to kill medicare and to keep the big oil subsidies. He hopes that by pumping a few folks gas tomorrow, he look like he cares.

Besides, what difference does it make. The world's going to end on May 21.

Republican Congressmen must be looking for a career change. Todd Young (IN-9) performed the same publicity stunt on Monday with the almost same identical story written up in local Indiana papers.

From the Courier-Journal:

Ninth District Congressman Todd Young, R-Bloomington, will be pumping gas at the Thornton’s at 401 W. Court Ave. in Jeffersonville from noon to 1 p.m. Monday to highlight efforts in Congress to lower gasoline prices.

Republicans LOWER gas prices.

Never. Never ever.

Oil companies are a cash cow to those guys.
