Boehner Poses Questions For Pelosi

House Majority Leader John Boehner has called on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to answer several questions about the Democrats' response to surging gas prices.

1. Will you and your Capitol Hill Democrats support comprehensive solutions designed to lower prices by increasing the supply of American energy and expanding our energy infrastructure in America? 

2. Will you and your Capitol Hill Democrats support responsible legislation supported by major labor organizations, such as the International Brotherhood of Teamsters to increase domestic energy supplies to create jobs for their workers? 

3. Will you and your Capitol Hill Democrats support legislation to expand clean nuclear energy supplies and the use of renewable fuels? 

4. Will you and your Capitol Hill Democrats support responsible legislation to streamline the process of refinery expansion and construction that is so critical to the future of America’s energy infrastructure? 

5. Will you and your Capitol Hill Democrats support legislation to put Americans to work producing more of our own American energy to lower prices? 


Boehner also stated
What have Capitol Hill Democrats done to help ease the strain of rising energy costs?  Restricting the supply of American energy, opposing renewable alternatives, and driving up gas prices are the wrong answers to this question.  The American people expect answers from their leaders.   Now, if only the Democrats could get the message.
