  •  Boycotts? (0+ / 0-)

    Representative Slaughter,

    Obviously, people are fed up with gas prices around the country. A Texas county in particular is moving to boycott Exxon Mobil.

    People are frustrated and not sure how to hold big oil companies accountable. I think it's sinking in that Republicans and big oil go hand in hand, but the elections are still months away.

    My question for you is, how can we (the people) lower gas prices NOW? Are boycotts feasible, or will they just hurt local workers and leave the big guys unfazed? Should we expect Congress to act in any meaningful way?

    (And ... I appreciate all you're doing for people-powered politics. It's great to see you posting so regularly.)

    Thanks,
    D

      Good luck with that. Enjoy your extremely expensive gas then. Actually paying money in order to stick it to "the man" is a new one I admit.
