Congress, Bush must act now

More mistakes of President Bush. One: He said he would veto any bills trying to regulate oil prices, as this would be price fixing. Wake up, Mr. President, what do you think the large oil corporations are doing? Congress should pass a bill breaking up the large oil corporations, which are controlling supply and price. Those who don’t sign on to such a bill will be remembered at election time. Many in Congress realize that by passing such a bill, they would lose large donations from these corporations. Our government has become a government of wealthy, special interest groups like the oil corporations and others, which pull the string of our elected officials like puppets.

Another mistake of Bush’s was trying to support a comprehensive immigration bill, which didn’t pass. The delay is allowing thousands of illegals to come across everyday — bringing drugs, women for prostitution and perhaps a few terrorists. The greatest dangers from terrorists are our unsecured borders. Congress should pass a stop-gap, one item bill to secure our borders and then work out the other details later. However, I guess this wouldn’t be asking too much for our do-nothing Congress and president, which both have all-time low ratings. Those who don’t sign on to such a bill will be remembered at election time. Does Congress really want to stop this immigration? Or do they want big donations from the large corporation, for which they provide cheap labor?

Congress and Bush should get off their lazy rear ends and stop the corruption, waste of taxpayers’ money and the disappearance of millions of dollars of oil in Iraq each day. This oil could even be funding the terrorists, which our brave troops are fighting, and we aren’t even getting our share. If our government officials can’t do their share, they should resign.
