Say Mr. President or whatever you are, I thought you were trying to bring back the economy?

Well with the gasoline prices going through the roof again, we as Americans have to choose (again), gas for getting our over-taxed butts to work or going out to spend what little we have left after the taxes that you take.

If we use the money for transportation to work instead of shopping, the economy will tank just like it did when you first took office.

So fix the "cliff," and bring down the gas prices. Maybe then people will be able to go out and help keep the economy going.
