100 Dollar Gas Rebate: An Insult To Our Intelligence

Recently, many congressional representatives have been pushing for a $100 federal rebate to help ease the pain at the gas pump. The very idea makes me seriously consider starting a movement to impose mandatory intelligence tests to all current and future members of congress. With all of the committees, subcommittees, and sub subcommittees ... this is the best idea they could come up with? For crying out loud, I got more money back with a mail in rebate when I bought my computer! With the national gas price currently $2.92 per gallon, this refund would only give recipients just over 34 gallons of gas ... and that's supposing the feds don't consider the allowance as "income" and apply taxes. Wow ... a free 34 gallons of gasoline ... sure, that will ease the public unrest about soaring pump prices.
