The New Democrat "Drill Now" Scam

No wonder Kagen reversed course on drilling.

Nancy authorized it. Of course, what you see is not necessarily what's good for the country.

Call it the Pelosi Poison Pill Petroleum Piffle...

Human Events (8/25) in Capital Briefs, reports:

According to (D) leadership sources....Pelosi is insisting on adding numerous poison pills to energy legislation she is drafting. [The bill] is designed to immunize [House democrats].. would include, among other things, a "renewable portfolio standard" ...[an] anti-coal provision ...require utilities to produce 15% of their power from wind, solar, and other renewable sources by 2020...

....also wants to eliminate various tax incentives for oil companies--a provision which would make gasoline more expensive...

Details matter. You can expect a lot of smoke-and-mirrors from Pelosi, who can (and does) lie grotesquely, if loudly, at the drop of a hat.

Expect Kagen to follow her lead.
