Head Crackpot Nancy Pelosi and her minions in DC....no, they left DC, on vacation now.... American Energy Freedom Day-50 Days Away!
The RSC continues to gather signatures on a letter to Democrat leadership, urging them not to schedule any legislation that would continue the moratoria on oil and gas leasing on most of the Outer Continental Shelf and on oil shale leasing on federal lands.
Such moratoria are set to automatically expire on October 1st-a day the RSC and Senator DeMint (R-SC) are calling "American Energy Freedom Day." The letter also notes that, should any legislation extending these moratoria be sent to President Bush's desk, the RSC would encourage the President to veto it. >>To see two video clips from Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) and RSC Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) about American Energy Freedom Day, click on these two links:
