House GOP accuses Obama admin of deliberately raising gas prices

House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) today suggested that the Obama administration is intentionally trying to boost oil and gas prices as part of a concerted effort to force the green agenda that it was unable to achieve through its failed cap-and-trade effort. Issa asked U.S. EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson today whether the Obama administration is raising gas prices through "government red tape, regulation, delays and obfuscations." The line of attack clearly annoyed panel ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), who panned the assertion as little more than a conspiracy theory first pushed by tea party champion Sarah Palin.
