Rehberg Logic: The Best Way to Prevent Domestic Oil Spills is to Keep Them Domestic

Shares

Your Representative, hard at work today:

Unfortunately, many have decided to use this spill as an excuse to cut back our domestic energy production.  That merely shifts energy production to foreign shores of the Middle East, Russia and Venezuela.  No one wants a repeat of what happened in the Gulf, and the best chance of succeeding in that goal is to keep the energy production right here at home, where the will to protect the environment meets the technological ability to make it happen.”

Not to nitpick, but presumably, if the technological ability to prevent spills existed, the Gulf accident wouldn’t have happened.

Keep shilling for the oil industry, Dennis. After all, they certainly spill a fair amount of cash your way every year.
