Higher energy costs! So what else is new?
Star Parker recently appeared on “Varney & Company” on the Fox Business Network to talk about how a rise in energy costs would impact the kind of low-income people who don’t want to live off the government.

The figure could end up higher, if the “greens” get their way. The working poor will have to struggle to pay higher energy bills. But don’t worry, says the government. We’re here to help. The government will redistribute wealth and give the poor a subsidy. But what if the working poor don’t want government hand-outs?
