SB 3126 includes the following, energy independent points:
1 - Drill off the continental shelf for oil.We've seen the results of the 40-year partnership of the Democrats and environmentalists:
2 - Tax credits for nuclear energy.
3 - Funding and credits for alternative sources.
1 - Dependency for oil on enemies of freedom in general, the US in particularBenefits of energy independence include but are not limited to:
2 - Sky-high gas prices because the economics of the market place finally reflect the absurdity of playing ostrich with energy demands: increased cost of building materials; increased food prices; (stock up on meat now - ranchers are dumping b/c they cannot afford feed - meat prices will jump in the fall);
3 - A refusal to build more refineries or nuclear plants yet France, the darling nation of the left, gets 75-80% of its power from nuclear plants but we Americans, with some of the most strict construction laws on the planet cannot build a nuclear power plant?
1 - Lower prices for energy - affects housing, driving, food production, etc.In other words, couple energy independence with American ingenuity, the entire planet wins!
2 - More private sector jobs (regardless of the Obama mantra, government solves very little but officials are very eager to tell us they do)
3 - Cheaper food
4 - Investment funds to continue to develop cleaner and more efficient products.
Updates to come but this is terrific news! Thank you, Senator Coleman!
