Pelosi, Congress drop the ball on energy…again!

August 4, 2008

Allow me this moment to applaud Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) and his Republican colleagues in the House of Representatives for exercising political courage on behalf of the American people.  Last week’s Republican floor revolt was an appropriate response to the Democratic majority’s unacceptable failure to address our nation’s energy concerns. 
America faces an energy crisis that threatens our economy, standard of living and national security.  Real leaders act in times of crisis.  Nancy Pelosi, Patrick Kennedy and the Democratic majority failed America on Friday.  They should be replaced. 
Congress created this energy crisis, common sense can solve it.  Congress must authorize more drilling.  At the same time we need to pursue all alternative energy options including wind projects such as Cape Wind. We need to create solar panels, build nuclear power plants and use more natural gas.  Every energy option must be placed on the table.  Energy prices will drop when the supply increases.      
The people of Rhode Island need representatives who are patriots first and party members second.  Those who feel well served by the Democratic majority’s failure to address the energy crisis should vote to send our current representatives back to Washington.  Those being harmed by the burden of unprecedented and unnecessarily high fuel costs should vote for new representation in November.
