The new legislation would raise the tax on oil produced offshore from 8 cents to 41 cents per barrel. That's nine cents higher than legislation that passed the House last month.

Democrats propose further tax hike on offshore oil - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100608/ap_on_go_co/us_congress_taxes_1 - broken link)

Is there any Democrat in this country that can solve something without raising taxes? Why is that always the Left's first answer to any situation?

Another fine example of the Democrats looking out for the middle-class.

"Never waste a good crisis."

Will this mantra ever nauseate liberals, or is it just conservatives who actually have a sense of dignity?
