Tax Cut for Hugo

Recently, the House passed H.R. 5351, a bill that will jack up the prices that you and I pay at the pump for gasoline through the imposition of an $18 billion dollar tax increase!

Investor's Business Daily put it this way

"It goes to show that Congress is more willing to empower dictators than to get serious about America's energy supply."

Meanwhile, Chavez is traveling all over the world, schmoozing with the leaders of anti-American nations like Iran and Russia.
More than one observer has suggested that Chavez is delusional, seeing himself as Simon Bolivar, who, in the early 19th century, liberated much of South America from the rule of Spain.
But the truth is: Chavez -- not just a cruel clown -- is more like Hitler or Stalin than Bolivar.
Here's a short biography of Hugo Chavez:
Leading a leftist-militarist faction, he attempted to overthrow the government in 1992 , failed, and ended up in prison. Six years later he was elected president of Venezuela.
Once in office, he began the systematic repression of any and all opposition.
He has thrown dissenters into prison, and ordered others shot. Even Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have condemned his regime.
When the newspapers, radio, and TV began to criticize him, he 'nationalized' them.
Now editors and reporters in Venezuela work for Chavez and either praise him or keep their mouths shut out of fear.
More recently Chavez launched a referendum that would have allowed him to remain Dictator for life.

Chavez is also wildly anti-Semitic and frequently unleashes hysterical diatribes against Israel and the Jewish people.
He even disturbs the New York Times, which once hailed Fidel Castro's ascension as a triumph of democracy and agrarian reform.

Pelosi and company's H.R. 5351 will yield Chavez an incomprehensible amount of money -- courtesy of American taxpayers -- which he can use to build dungeons for political prisoners and buy bullets for firing squads.
