In an op-ed, Rep. Rob Bishop
says: "[M]any Americans today are looking for a light at the end of the tunnel, a sign that today's struggling economy and rising unemployment will actually improve sooner rather than later. As these families search for relief, the Obama
Administration continues to emphasize politics over substance, and seems more intent on serving narrow special interests than in serving the interests of the American public. ... [Obama] continues to play politics with our energy future. Evidence of this fact is the recent cancellation of 77 oil and gas leases in Utah, delayed access to the Outer Continental Shelf, blocked mineral leases, new restrictive oil shale mandates and the consideration of costly taxes on U.S. energy producers and consumers."
