That's what this amounts to, isn't it?
There's another crazy idea floating around that might have a comparable effect to the Schumer proposal: increase domestic oil production. It might not offer the added features of the Schumer plan -- increasing our addiction to foreign oil, while at the same time interfering with foreign policy -- but I suspect the American people will be OK with that.
I wonder if the press will make this point when the bill comes up for a vote?
