McConnell's Fox Interview

Here's the link to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell's interview on Fox and Friends, in which he makes a strong argument for Republican legislation to "find more and use less" oil.

McConnell pointed out the absurdity of some of the Democratic proposals. Their proposed ban on America exporting oil, for instance, would only free up enough oil to run our country for half a day (and the oil is exported to Puerto Rico, in any event).

More than 1.3 million Americans have signed the petition to drill here, drill now and pay less. As McConnell has said repeatedly, electric cars, wind mills and whatever other alternative sources that American ingenuity can produce are the long term solution. In the meantime, however, we need to tap our own resources.
