"We're Gona Drill!, Yes! We're Gona Drill!" - -NOT

Early today, it was learned that a Bill is being developed to provide cover for the Anti-drillers in Congress until after the November election.

What is being called the Gang of Ten is still meeting and planning on pushing forth a bill that stinks of politics. The five RINO (Republican In Name Only) Senators joining this Gang are Lindsey Graham, John Thune, Saxby Chambliss, Bob Corker and Johnny Isakson.

It would appear that this Bill will not pass, but it is really intended to give the illusion that the Senate is putting new drilling on the table, and that it is therefore, no longer an issue. However, even if it were to pass, it greatly restricts any real drilling. It puts only four states in play. Drilling permits would be completely up to the states, but no drilling could be closer to shore than 50 miles. ANWR and all other on shore drilling on any Federal lands remains off limits. The Bill includes very strenuous hurdles that are intended to cause years of red tape and law suits before any drilling permits could be issued.

The plan is plain and simple, a typical Democrat giveaway. The main point of the Bill is $84 Billion in tax credits, subsidies, and other handouts for alternative fuels. These funds are to be stolen from the oil companies. Any bets on how long it is going to take for the oil industry to move off-shore?

This proposed Bill is the product of 5 useless RINO’s being tricked (or bought) to give cover to the Do Nothing Congress false cover made to look like they have plans to permit drilling.

Unfortunately none of the five fools (Lindsey Graham, John Thune, Saxby Chambliss, Bob Corker, Johnny Isakson) is up for reelection this year.

It took me 40 years, but I now understand that the Democrats are ALL about the sizzle.

There is never any real steak!

I will have to say that you were correct--

Here we are, five years later and still NO DRILLING on Fed regulated land or sea.
