Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), member of the House Appropriations Committee….”We (the government) should own the refineries. Then we can control how much gets out into the market.”

Here again is the Democratic record on US energy–
Over the past 30 years:

Democrats have blocked the development of new sources of petroleum.
Democrats have blocked drilling in ANWR.
Democrats have blocked drilling off the coast of Florida.
Democrats have blocked drilling off of the east coast.
Democrats have blocked drilling off of the west coast.
Democrats have blocked drilling off the Alaskan coast.
Democrats have blocked building oil refineries.
Democrats have blocked clean nuclear energy production.
Democrats have blocked clean coal production.

Over the past 30 years Democrats have created “No Zones” for US energy exploration and development:

(Republican Senator Craig put together this map in 2006.)
As Americans pay more for gas than ever under this Congress–
Democrats continue to vote against energy development and exploration.

Yesterday, President Bush urged the Democratic Congress to lift the ban on offshore drilling in the US. Senator McCain proposed building 45 new nuclear reactors to ease the energy crunch in the US.
America is the only country that will not tap its own energy reserves but has the gall to demand foreign regimes to up their oil output.

In response to this request Democrats proposed a government takeover of the oil industry!
We’re starting to see a trend here.
Maybe this was their plan all along?
