Good Release from Republican Leader John Boehner on the CLEAR Act

WASHINGTON, D.C., July 29, 2010 - Tomorrow, the House is expected to vote on the Democrats’ so-called energy legislation (H.R. 3534) that will destroy jobs, increase energy costs, and make America more dependent on foreign oil.  Read what House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) said regarding the devastating impact this bill will have on American families and businesses:

“The oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico is a terrible tragedy, and reforms are needed to make American deepwater energy production the safest in the world.  But Washington Democrats are exploiting the Gulf tragedy to pass unrelated measures that will destroy American jobs, increase energy costs, and make America more dependent on foreign sources of energy.  The bill they introduced – H.R. 3534 – includes a new tax hike on American energy.  That’s the last thing the American people need, especially struggling families on the Gulf coast.  Americans want the government to focus squarely on holding BP accountable, cleaning up this mess, and finding out what went wrong.

“By raising taxes on the oil and natural gas produced in the United States, this legislation will raise costs for consumers, increase our dependence on foreign energy, and destroy jobs here in the United States.”
