Rep. Bill Johnson (R-Ohio) is mincing no words in expressing his frustration with President Obama and his energy agenda. Johnson says Obama is pursuing energy policies that frustrate businesses rather than partner with them to grow the economy.
Johnson rips Obama for ignoring our own vast natural resources while pumping billions into failed "green energy" firms like Solyndra. He's particularly incensed at what he considers a crippling regulatory burden coming from the federal government - regulations that that have already closed multiple coal-fired power plants.
"Obama is focused on wasting the American taxpayers' dollars on green-energy initiatives like Solyndra versus the proven benefits of going after our own natural resources."
The congressman also highlights what House Republicans are doing to increase domestic energy and bring soaring fuel costs back under control.
