Beck + The list - Why gas is so expensive

here they are ... some of our brilliant "public servants" (right!)

These are the people who just voted in a partisan fashion to not allow drilling in the outer continental shelf.
From Glenn Beck's program today ...

The list

So why IS gas so darn expensive? There are a lot of reasons, but somehow the biggest problem (as usual) points directly to Washington DC. Democrats yesterday in a subcommittee voted basically to kill going to the outer continental shelf to drill for oil because there are 'other things we can do'. Glenn would like to introduce you to the people who are preventing us from drilling here at home, because, as Glenn says, these people should be famous. When the pitchforks and torches start coming out---we'd like to help clarify who was for or against us.
