Alert: Pelosi 'Drill Nowhere, Drill Never' Scam Headed for Senate Vote

Jeff Mazzella, Center for Individual Freedom: More political games designed to dupe the American people! Increased prices at the pump! More dependence on oil from Iran, Venezuela and other foreign countries that HATE America! That basically sums up Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her liberal cohorts' plan to address our nation's energy crisis. Indeed, leave it to the Pelosi Politburo to pass a bill, literally in the dark of night, that EFFECTIVELY PROHIBITS domestic drilling and then try to sell the legislation to the American people as a measure that opens up domestic drilling!

In case you missed it, here's the play by play on Pelosi's energy "hoax": On Monday evening at 9:45 PM, Pelosi dropped a 245-page bill on Congress (H.R. 6899, the so-called "Comprehensive American Energy Security and Consumer Protection Act."). Then, using arcane procedural maneuvers, she effectively stifled substantive debate, by-passed the committee process, prohibited amendments and forced a vote within 24 hours! And on Tuesday evening, the House of Representatives passed this "sham bill" on a mostly partisan vote of 239-189!

And Pelosi's bill is NOTHING BUT SMOKE AND MIRRORS. It will ACTUALLY PROHIBIT DOMESTIC DRILLING, RAISE YOUR TAXES, and has a 'mother-load' of Congressional pork!
  • Republican House Minority Leader, John Boehner, had this to say: "It would permanently lock up 80 percent of our nation's offshore energy resources -- holding hostage billions of barrels of American oil."


  • Congressman Jeb Hensarling called it "a hoax bill that would permanently prevent exploration of nearly 90 percent of the Outer Continental Shelf for American energy and block energy production in arctic Alaska and the Inter-Mountain West."


  • House Minority Whip Roy Blunt said; "I'm offended.... And the American people should be offended that we're not doing the job for them that really matters."



  • The liberal media is already giving Pelosi political cover and repeating the lie. Within minutes of the passage of this "sham legislation":
  • Reuters wrote: "The U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation Tuesday that lifts a longstanding ban on offshore oil drilling, opening most of the U.S. coastline to exploration."


  • The New York Times wrote: "The House on Tuesday night approved a measure that would ease a longstanding ban on offshore oil drilling..."


  • CNN: "The House of Representatives on Tuesday night passed an energy bill clearing the way for more oil drilling off U.S. coasts..."



  • But the sad truth is that this legislation DOES NOT lift the ban on offshore drilling; it actually effectively puts MORE RESTRICTIONS on offshore drilling! Right now, this "Pelosi sham bill" is on the fast-track to the Senate and the only thing that may stand in its way -- and the passage of REAL energy legislation that will actually open up domestic drilling -- is YOU and millions of other concerned Americans! If we don't take action right now, the mantra of "drill here and drill now" may be replaced by a policy of "drill nowhere, drill never and raise taxes on the American people." Contact Your Senators!

    [T]he House of Representatives approved a bill to allow offshore oil drilling, but nearly all the Republicans voted against it... It isn’t a drilling bill, it’s an anti-drilling bill. If it becomes law, nearly all the oil and gas in the Outer Continental Shelf would be off-limits forever... This bill permanently bans all drilling within 50 miles of the US coast, which just happens to be where most of the recoverable oil and gas reserves are. It permits drilling between 50 and 100 miles out only if the adjoining states agree - which they won’t, since the bill denies them any share in the royalties the oil companies would have to pay, thereby eliminating any financial incentive for a state to say yes. Virtually all the oil off the California coast and beneath the Eastern Gulf of Mexico would be locked up for good. Don’t be fooled: The only offshore drilling this bill really opens the door to would have to be 100 miles or more out to sea, where the oil companies have no infrastructure... According to the Interior Department, the offshore areas where drilling is restricted contain more than 19 billion barrels—that’s equal to 30 years of current imports from Saudi Arabia. The bill would deny Americans access to as much as nine-tenths of that oil. A good deal? I don’t think so.
