She has shown her true colors every time Bush called for lifting the drilling ban in the gulf she voted against it. Costing her state a lot of revenue and jobs. Now it's getting back to her.
Democrats are blaming oil companies for the high prices of oil. Today I watched the hearing they had with the CEO's of the five big oil companies wherein they accusing the companies for making too much in profits this year. Oil companies can't do anything with their profits because they can't "Drill". If they could drill they could invest the profits in equipment, hire workers and invest in developing technologies.
I don’t think she is up for reelection until 2014. By then she might have switched party’s.
Just like in the old days, if you wanted food, you produced it. Every state in America, all 50, if you consume energy, you need to produce something. You can produce it by wind, you could produce it by hydro, you could produce it by nuclear, you could stop driving all your automobiles and everybody walk. You could give everybody a bicycle — we dont care.
ed schultz, randi rhodes, and the rest will choke on these words
I got some of the sound bites from the hearing courtesy of Rush.
Oil companies do not get subsidies.
Oil companies paid in taxes, exactly what they received in profits.
Oil Companies appear to have a spine.
Oil Company execs before congress are not gong to just lay down and take it.
The hearings need to be more available to the public.
As for Mary L. pure dem through and through. I agree with the premise that she has permission...
If the ‘Rats had their way all 57 States would be Non-Energy-Producing States.
The heir of a perpetual and well-sheltered family fortune of Billions gleaned from his geat-grandfather's business...
lecturing oil company executives about “shared sacrifice”
Got to marvel at how stupid he is, aside from his patrician arrogance
Obviously the Rockefeller gene pool has been greatly diluted
Why do we continue to let the left run the debate on this? The oil companies do not get subsidies, they get tax breaks!
It's what RATS do for a living. Is she just finding this out now?
Regardless of Mary’s motives, it’s refreshing to get these comments out into the discussion. She did help expose Jay Rockefeller’s idiocy.
Louisiana is doing a great job producing everything it needs?
Really? Did that happen after Katrina and the rats running the state screamed bloody murder for the federal government to save it and provide instant housing, food, and water at no cost to the state?
What will her tune be this time next week when NOLA is dealing with the worst spring flooding since the 1920’s?
I don’t see “Heck of a job you’re doing Baracky” sending FEMA trailers to LA yet.
I guess the Kennedy mentality is alive and well in Louisiana. Voting for a last name that signifies political corruptness vs. voting for rationality, Louisiana deserves what they vote for. I guess "bacon" spread out to the fortunate cronies are more important then jobs.
On the surface it might seem that way, but issue wasn't about drilling, it was about the royalties.
Bush was opposed to royalty sharing and she was for it.
And when Congress finally passed the GOM Energy Security Act of 2006 which opened a very large area known as Area 181 and South 181 to drilling, she was a prime mover behind that legislation and obviously voted for it.
In that legislation TX, LA, MS, and AL were given royalty sharing.
Now, the states of VA, MD, and NC on the Atlantic coast have expressed varying degrees of willingness to drill off their coast. All of that is predicated on those states receiving royalty sharing.
There is a history dealing with how the coastal states, interior states, and the feds economically benefit from drilling the shelf. It starts with the Truman Proclamation in 1945, Eisenhower's Submerged Lands Act in 1954, CARA-CARA 2000-CARA Compromise, and the 2006 legislation.
