Pelosi, Democrats Adjourn ----- Two Years of a Failed Policy on Energy

Nancy Pelosi and her cohorts have painted themselves into a corner on this critical issue facing the nation. She has refused to allow the vote for offshore drilling to even come to the floor of the House. The vast reserves that this nation possesses will go untapped as long as the Democrats are in control of the majority. In the meantime, we send billions of dollars to foreign countries daily while our own energy independence is shackled by a party that prefers $5.00 a gallon gas, and a broken economy.

From Ed Morrissey at Hot Air:

"This is the message that the Republicans have to hammer home, especially in August when Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid send Congress home without doing anything to increase domestic production. Rarely has a major issue produced such bipartisan consensus among the electorate, and even more rarely has it produced such obstinacy in the majority party in Congress. Gas price increases hit everyone across the board and make energy policy extremely personal — and the Democrats want to do nothing to increase domestic supply to correct for it."
