Lawmakers Split on Drilling for Vast Amounts of Oil in USA

On the Spot ( – Members of Congress interviewed by Cybercast News Service on Thursday were split on what to do about huge amounts of oil within U.S. territory that remains untapped because of U.S. laws and regulations.

A report released by the Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) last month estimates there are 139 billion barrels of untapped, recoverable oil onshore and offshore in the United States.

Two Republican congressmen say they support removing regulations in order to drill for the oil, while two Democrats say they oppose immediate action.

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) told Cybercast News Service he was aware of the BLM report. More from Cybercast News Service

Rep. Mike Honda (D-Calif.) and, of course, House Ways And Means Chairman Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y), are opposed to domestic drilling. Apparently, they are on the take from the greenie-weenie special interest lobbyists.

They may not mind paying $4 a gallon for gas – oh, wait – they don’t pump or pay for their own gas, we are. Call your representatives today and demand we start domestic drilling and build more refineries. No more pathetic excuses from Congressmen and Senators on the take from the greenie-weenie lobbyists. Don’t care about the snail darter – we need our own oil.
