US Energy Policy

Here is an interesting email that has been making the rounds....

The American energy policy:

ANWR Exploration
House Republicans:91%Supported
House Democrats: 86% Opposed

Coal-to-Liquid
House Republicans: 97% Supported
House Democrats: 78% Opposed

Oil Shale Exploration
House Republicans: 90% Supported
House Democrats: 86% Opposed

Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Exploration
House Republicans: 81% Supported
House Democrats: 83% Opposed

Refinery Increased Capacity
House Republicans: 97% Supported
House Democrats: 96% Opposed

SUMMARY

91% of House Republicans have historically voted to increase the
production of American-made oil and gas.

86% of House Democrats have historically voted against increasing the
production
of American-made oil and gas.

How much did you pay for gas TODAY??
Why are you blaming President Bush and the Republicans??

The problem we have in this country is supply - we obviously need to produce more oil and also create a more diverse portfolio of energy that includes air, wind, hydro, fuel cell, solar and nuclear power.

Enough talk - let's do it already.
