Boehner: "Republicans Are Prepared to Deliver the Change America Deserves with a Meaningful and Comprehensive Energy Agenda"
Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) today opposed the Democratic Majority's "NOPEC" legislation, which passed last year on May 22, 2007 as well. Boehner issued the following statement:
"By passing legislation already approved by the House a year ago, Democrats have waved the white flag on gas prices. They have no commonsense plan' to lower fuel costs - just the same, tired proposals that will do nothing to increase our energy supply on behalf of families and small businesses.
"With gas prices soaring to an all-time high of $3.80 today and the summer driving season just ahead of us, the American people expect more out of Congress than the legislation passed - again - by the House today. Instead, they expect their leaders to move forward on reforms that will boost American supplies of energy and bring down the skyrocketing costs of gasoline. Tomorrow, House Republicans will unveil those reforms to reduce our dependence on foreign sources of energy, protect us against blackmail by foreign dictators, create American jobs, and grow our economy.
"The Democrats' inaction on gas prices is the surest sign yet that Washington is broken. Republicans are prepared to deliver the change America deserves with a meaningful and comprehensive energy agenda."
