Mitt Romney Needs to Adopt My Energy Plan
We need to start exporting liquefied natural gas now. Mitt Romney
needs to adopt this simple idea as the foundation of his energy plan.
The United States has huge reserves of Natural gas. We need to tap
these reserves, not just as a way to create energy independence here at
home, but as a way to create jobs.
The Obama Administration and its team of overzealous environmental
lawyers refuse to approve the exportation of liquefied natural gas. It
is all part of Obama’s war on the Energy industry. Here is what
happens when we start sending liquefied natural gas overseas:
1. The price of natural gas will move from “dirt cheap” to
“cheap” creating more incentive for Oil and Gas firms to drill here at
home. That creates more jobs, putting an instant infusion of cash into
our struggling economy.
2. China is in desperate need of natural gas. By supplying China
with our Natural Gas, we get China to rely on the United States for a
change. This would start to turn the tables on our current
uncomfortable situation. Right now the United States is far too
reliant on the Chinese and their cash.
I have been pushing this simple policy for over a year. I am happy to
report, just before leaving for recess, a bi-partisan group of 44
members of Congress urged Obama’s Energy Secretary to fast track the
approval of LNG. I predict, this approval will NOT come until
President Obama is sent home this November.
