Heres a look at some of the coverage of Republican efforts to hold the administration accountable:
Republicans have passed a series of bipartisan jobs bills under the American Energy Initiative and Plan for Americas Job Creators that remove barriers to energy production and stop policies that drive up gas prices. But these bipartisan bills remain stuck in the Democratic-controlled Senate.
The failure of the Obama administration and Senate Democrats to act prompted a letter from Congressman Boehner to President Obama yesterday. According to Politico, Boehner wrote, Over the last three years, your administration has blocked, slowed and discouraged the production of critical American energy sources. These actions are bad for energy prices and bad for jobs. Reuters says Boehners letter raises the heat on President Obama to work with Republicans and approve projects like the Keystone XL pipeline, which would create tens of thousands of new jobs.
