In a 243-179 vote Thursday, the House passed a measure that would open up areas off the West and East coasts, Alaska and the eastern Gulf of Mexico to drilling. All republicans and even 28 democrats voted for the bill.
The Senate is unlikely to pass it and it is opposed by the White House.
If we started drilling, I have no doubt that gas prices will start to go down.
This puts it on the line as to who is responsible for the persistent high gas prices. They are trying every way possible to divert attention but fault is squarely at the doorstep of the democrats and the white house. Without any doubt.
They would rather fund drilling for Brazil and have us buy oil from them. Disgraceful.
The democrats and the white house want us all to be bankrupt.
