Oil Drilling in the U.S. - #2874 - House GOP Throws Down the Gauntlet on Energy - Hot Air (2) VIDEO: Obama's Anti-Energy Policies Are Bankrupting America - Heritage Foundation

It’s a battle that’s been a long time coming. We’ve watched for at least the last year while the President and his enablers have essentially shut down various elements of domestic energy production, first through a moratorium and then through a permitorium......The subject of the discussion was three bills being brought to the floor which may, if we can muster the support required, finally break the log jam.
They are:
H.R. 1229 -  Putting the Gulf of Mexico Back to Work Act. To amend the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act to facilitate the safe and timely production of American energy resources from the Gulf of Mexico.
H.R. 1230 -  Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act. To require the Secretary of the Interior to conduct certain offshore oil and gas lease sales, and for other purposes.
H.R. 1231 -  Reversing President Obama’s Offshore Moratorium Act. To amend the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act to require that each 5-year offshore oil and gas leasing program offer leasing in the areas with the most prospective oil and gas resources, to establish a domestic oil and natural gas production goal, and for other purposes.  See also post #2872 - article #4 - on Congressman Doc Hastings.  Read more........  See video below of the CEO of Seahawk Drilling and a real life example of the devastation done to just one company that was trying to drill oil in the gulf.  Please call your Representative in the House in support of these bills, in VA-5th, Robert Hurt, 202-225-4711.  List of House of Representatives Contact Information.......



Obama's Anti-Drilling Policies Are Bankrupting America - Heritage Foundation - Randall Stilley has witnessed firsthand the Obama administration’s job-killing agenda. As the president and chief executive of Seahawk Drilling, he had to lay off 632 employees before filing for bankruptcy — a direct result of President Barack Obama’s anti-energy policies.  Stilley’s company owned and operated 20 shallow-water rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. The lack of energy production — a consequence of Obama’s drilling moratorium and subsequent “permitorium” — led to Seahawk’s demise. Now he’s speaking out, sharing Seahawk’s story in a new video from Heritage and the Institute for Energy Research.  Read more........ AW: Please watch this video, this is the reality of Obama's Oil Drilling Policies, the face behind the numbers of unemployed in the oil drilling field.
