Thank you Mr. Speaker of the House

Well, I guess I'm not the only one blogging about this outrage. Denny Hastert, Speaker of the House, just blogged about it too. He's starting his own blog, giving us mere mortals the insider look on the issues the House is examining. And the two big ones he mentions: fiscal responsibility and energy. BP and Exxon Mobile have posted record profits and the gas stations have posted record prices. BP's profits for the 3rd quarter alone are $5.5 billion and Exxon Mobile's were about $10 billion. $15 BILLION IN PROFIT IN 3 MONTHS????? Are you kidding me?! How about some relief for average joe over here?

In case your interested, please read Denny Hastert's blog here:

Harry Reid (Sen. for Nevada, not sure of his partisanship) also has a good speech, some of which i agree with, some of which I don't, but it's interesting none the less:
