    His remarks this afternoon consisted largely of the same empty green-job-rhetoric that he has offered since he was a candidate. He did not offer a comprehensive strategy to power our nation, he offered his utopic vision of a green economy powered by government subsidies and federal mandates.

    "This announcement is a huge win for West Texas, and brings a flood of encouragement in a discouraging economic environment. This project will directly create thousands of jobs for hard-working West Texans. Texas has a unique opportunity with the "NowGen" project, as it is the first of its kind and will be used as an example for clean coal technology across the globe in the future.

    The Obama administration has privately concluded that a cap and trade law would cost American taxpayers up to $200 billion a year, the equivalent of hiking personal income taxes by about 15 percent.

At the upper end of the administration's estimate, the cost per American household would be an extra $1,761 a year. Read more

The impact of this EPA regulation would amount to a tax on every pig or head of cattle. Read more

    “Week after week, the Democratic leadership continues their rhetoric on change and the need for affordable energy, yet the legislation that was passed last night is nothing more than a sham bill on display for political gains. There are no new refineries included in their bill, no nuclear energy, no clean coal, no drilling in ANWR, and, if you read the fine print, no domestic exploration in the Outer Continental Shelf for additional drilling. In addition, the bill includes $19 billion in energy tax hikes on American consumers, manufacturers and small businesses." Read more
