Energy legislation isn’t broad enough for drilling

The dear-ole-do-nothing-Democrat-led Congress has done it again — a big nothing.

But now, those same Democrats have added insult by claiming their “historic comprehensive energy legislation” is a solution to our energy shortage and includes more drilling when, in truth, it does the exact opposite.

That legislation literally bans drilling within 50 miles of shore which is where, according to the Institute for Energy Research, the “vast majority of undiscovered oil and gas reserves” are located. The bill is bogus and that do-nothing-Democratic-led Congress and Speaker Nancy Pelosi knows it, or ought to know it!

And, I suggest that anyone who tells you that that bill will solve our energy problem is either a liar or a moron.

I agree with voters who are so mesmerized, blinded, and obviously capitalizing on yelling “Change! We want change!”

We need change, all right! Change to that do-nothing-Democratic-led Congress ASAP!
