President Needs To Put The Heat On Leader Reid

All,

The President will be in Newton, IA today to discuss energy and his ‘to-do’ list for Congress. While the President continues to give speeches, House Republicans have acted on a number of proposals that will increase domestic energy production, bring down gas prices, grow our economy and create hundreds-of-thousands of new jobs right here at home. It’s time for the President to call on Leader Harry Reid to get to work, instead of employing more empty rhetoric on the campaign trail.

NOTE: Follow the House Energy Action Team’s nation-wide “American Energy and Jobs Tour” today through @GOPWhip for House Republican responses to the President’s failed record on energy.
