While House Democrats have lined up on the House floor today to engage in disingenuous political attacks, House Republicans have championed an energy agenda that addresses rising energy prices, helps create jobs here at home, and promotes American energy security.
Here are a few examples of House Energy Action Team members leading the charge against Democrats’ energy tax hikes that defy “both logic and commonsense.”
Rep. Steve Scalise On Democrats’ Energy Tax Hikes: “That Means Higher Prices At The Pump.” REP. SCALISE: “It’s our local energy producers here in America who pay that tax. And you know what ends up happening and equating to? That means higher prices at the pump. $30 billion in higher prices at the pump.” (Rep. Steve Scalise, Remarks On The House Floor, Washington, D.C., 5/5/11)
