California’s Leftist Policies are About to IMPLODE

There is an adage at says, “be careful what one wishes for, because it might come to pass.”

These words of wisdom were unfortunately not heeded by those with political power in the state of California. As a result of the state’s leftist policies, California is currently suffering under extreme gas rates. It seems as if the leftist policies that make up so much of the California political party have now come home to roost and the citizens are the ones suffering.

When Californians complain about “pain at the pump” they aren’t exaggerating. In fact, according to numbers from the American Automobile Associate, California currently has the highest gas prices in the nation. Californians are paying $4.080 per gallon for regular, $4.237 for mid-grade and $4.340 for premium, with diesel fuel averaging $4.101 per gallon. To compare, no other state in the nation even gets close to the $4.00 mark, even for premium. Hawaii, which requires gas to be shipped via tanker, currently has prices of $3.624, $3.784, $3.940 and $4.217. This means California is still 4 cents more expensive than a state who has to ship in their gas.

According to Fox Business News, California Governor Gavin Newson has formally requested an investigation to launch. He is asking the California Energy commission to look into the cause of the price hike. Newson said there was analysis that suggested there could be an “unaccounted for price differential” caused by “inappropriate industry practices.” There was a “mystery surcharge” discovered by analysis performed by former chair of the California Commission’s Petroleum Market Advisory Committee and University professor of California Berkley Severin Borenstien. He said the price cannot be explained by higher taxes or production costs.

“In the past few years, the price gap with other states has jumped much more than costs and taxes can explain,” Severin said.

Here are a few reasons why gas is thought to be so expensive in the Golden State:

  • California is on a fuel-island, meaning it has no pipelines that allow it to be supplied crude soil or petroleum supplies.
  • There are regulations that demand special blends of gasoline.
  • California’s “differentiated” fuel standards cause a risk of “supply outages.”
  • Californians currently pay 30 cents extra per gallon of gas when compared to other states.
  • California is 14 days of travel via tanker from the Gulf Coast.

True enough, these are valid theories, but others believe the root cause for gas prices is more political.

For example, Gavin Newsom, as lieutenant governor, supported a bill that increased the state’s gas taxes in 2017. When he ran for governor in 2018, he then opposed the repeal the increase. This seems a bit silly to think that the same person who voted to increase taxes on gas is now asking others to investigate why they are so high.

The California governor and some others don’t feel it’s the result of political decisions, such as tax increases that have caused the current problem. However, one can’t deny that California has some extreme tax rates. They are taxed 41.7 cents per gallon. This rate will increase to 47.3 cents in July. In addition to this, Californians are also burdened with a 2.25% gasoline sales tax and are strapped with a low-carbon fuel standard and a cap-and-trade scheme for carbon emissions. This means altogether, the states has to pay $.24 cents of taxes per gallon above the national average.

All the taxes and restrictions mentioned above are changes that those on the left have wanted in order to reduce CO2 emissions. As someone once said, “elections have consequences.” This has proven to be true in California. Though the voters elected politicians and supported greater restrictions on emissions and increased taxes on gas, they now aren’t very happy they have to pay more at the pump. Sure, there might be some other causes that should be investigated, but at least a generous portion of problem seems to be a result of various political choices.

Why the Democrats Really Want Trump’s Tax Returns

Posted On : May 6, 2019 Published By : Rightwing
why-the-democratic-party-really-wants-tr

After Mueller report was released there was a lot of speculation as to what the Democratic Party would do next.

There were a few that thought maybe they would call for his impeachment while others were looking for another avenue to try to find something wrong with President Trump.

It did not take all but a few days for the House to ask for The President’s tax returns. But one has to wonder what the motive is for them asking for such documents several years into his presidency.

When the request came out President Trump’s attorney made reference to the requests as not having any legitimate legislative purposes.

The person that is representing President Trump in this request is William Consovoy.

The House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, Democrat from Massachusetts was the one that made the request under the guise that the panel is authorized by the law to be able to view the tax returns in question.

Consovoy wrote in response to the requests, “That it is limited to a single President, seeks tax information from before the President took office, asks no questions about IRS policy, and does not even wait for the IRS to finish its ongoing examinations (and any resulting appeals) reveals that Chairman Neal’s request is nothing more than an attempt to exercise constitutional authority that Congress does not possess.”

He argues that Chairman Neal’s reasons behind the request to see the returns are lacking.

He believes that there is no legislative reason why the request was made.

So the question comes up as to what the reasons may be.

He goes on to say that, “Congress has no constitutional authority to act like a junior varsity IRS, rerunning individual examinations or flyspecking the agency’s calculations.”

On the other side of the request Neal has stated that all concerns about the request, lack merit.”

He then set another date and time for the returns to be handed over.

He went on to allude to the fact that they were wanting to see them because they are looking into a legislative proposal and oversight that relates to tax laws.

They also want oversight as to what the IRS enforces such laws against a president in office.

Another thought is that the House wants to see how much President Trump has benefited from the new tax laws that were put into effect.

President Trump has washed his hands of his personal business while he is in office.

There is not reason to believe that he would seek any kind of personal gain while being in office. He has been a persona integrity and honest with the American people so far.

There is no reason to believe that he would risk everything over a few minor benefits.

The President has made it all to clear that he will not give up his returns.

His reason behind the refusal is because he is in audit.

This refusal has broken the chain of all other presidents that gave up their returns for viewing. One thing can be said about President Trump is that he is not afraid to go against the norm.

This kind of leader is refreshing and new to the American people.

The American people are tired of cat and mouse games that seem to be played out in politics.

They want to see action and results from their leaders.

The request for the returns is interestingly placed just after the Mueller report came out and found President Trump to be innocent of everything he was being accused of.

It seems that the Democrats need another avenue to pursue in order to discredit this current President.

President Trump does not seem to really be bothered by their request.

The more they pursue the returns the more they will find out what their duties as Representatives really entail as elected officials.

The leaders of the United States need to stay focused on making America great and doing what is in the best interests of the people.
