Senate GOP Working To End Restrictions On Offshore Drilling

Good to know

The Senate Republicans who are trying to force Congress to lift restrictions on offshore drilling say they have 38 senators backing their efforts to force a showdown over the critical campaign issue of energy prices — one that could shut down the government.

Democratic leaders in Congress want to extend the moratorium on new offshore oil and gas drilling, which is due to expire Oct. 1, and the most likely route would be to attach the proposal to a catchall spending bill needed to keep the federal government running.

But at least 38 Republicans have signed a letter pledging to “actively oppose” that extension.

But, can they go hang in the building with their House bretheren?

It comes down to a simple equation: Republicans want America to produce way more of its own energy, and oil is available, and necessary. Democrats want $10 a gallon gas. Republicans stand with the American people. Democrats don’t.
