I received the below from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce today.
It involves another seriously dangerous decision by the Obama administration.
This decision, this moratorium is a blatant attempt to please the far left EcoNazi’s which make up a big part of the Democratic base.
Once again politics supersedes common sense and the private sector free market takes a hit that will impact everyone.
This is the kind of decision that could make you long for the days of $4.00 a gallon gas.
The political pandering from this administration has been one of the few things that has been transparent. From special considerations for the unions to the sleazy suit against Arizona’s immigration law, this administration continues to demonstrate it’s true priorities.
For months, the number one priority in the Gulf of Mexico has been to stop the flow of oil — and ensure ecological restoration following the catastrophic oil spill accident.
However, another serious matter has emerged that will negatively impact the Gulf Coast for years to come.
The Obama Administration has issued a devastating hold on all energy exploration activities in the Gulf of Mexico which will have ripple effects across the entire U.S. economy.
This ban has caused energy producers to begin moving their operations to other countries leaving thousands of workers on the docks.
Already thousands are voicing their opposition to this job killing ban, as seen at last week’s rally against the moratorium. To read more about the outpouring at the Cajundome, click here.
This drilling moratorium will have a major impact on Gulf Coast families and the economy — threatening to leave more than 10,000 out of work in Louisiana alone if the moratorium continues.
We cannot afford the Administration to neglect thousands of families dependent on energy exploration for jobs for the sake of a political statement.
We must act immediately. Click here to send a letter to the Obama Administration and demand a lift of the moratorium on jobs and growth and allow for the safe exploration of American energy resources.
