Popular Progressive: Why are the Democrats so anti-American energy?
Excerpted from this post at Popular Progressive
Virginia Foxx, a Republican congresswoman from North Carolina asked a
great question during a press conference held yesterday "Why are the
Democrats anti-American energy?" Apparently being "anti-American
energy" means not allowing oil companies carte blanche to open up the
ANWR to oil and gas exploration or the outer continental shelf to deep
sea oil exploration. So why are the Democrats so "anti-American"?
Perhaps they don't believe that existing American oil and gas fields
are all in play. EIA (Energy Information Administration) data shows
that domestic production of oil has decreased from the 1980's to about
half the level today.
