Hugo Chávez advises Democrats on U.S. oil production

Well, not really, but they have the same philosophy: Nationalize the oil industry.

House Democrats responded to President's Bush's call for Congress to lift the moratorium on offshore drilling. This was at an on-camera press conference fed back live.

Among other things, the Democrats called for the government to own refineries so it could better control the flow of the oil supply.

Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), member of the House Appropriations Committee and one of the most-ardent opponents of off-shore drilling said "We (the government) should own the refineries. Then we can control how much gets out into the market." (Source.)

As a tipster to Newsbusters mentioned, the Senate can't make a tuna sandwich correctly, but it wants to run the oil industry.

Why not throw in healthcare why we're at it!? That way, the gov't can control about 20% more of the economy! That's exactly what we need.
