All You Need To Know About Republicans And Gas Prices

Okay, so oil executives were called before Congress to testify about recording record profits while gas prices went through the roof. But check this little nugget out:
The hearing opened with Republicans refusing a request by Democrats that the five executives take an oath before testifying.
The Republicans refused to make them tell the truth? WHAT THE FUCK? If they’re allowed, hell practically encouraged to lie, what’s the point of the hearings anyways?

And am I the only one who assumed that anyone testifying before Congress HAD to take an oath?
