Debbie Wasserman Schultz pans the plan too

Broward Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz isn't a fan of the Obama administration's drilling plan either: "While I appreciate President Obama's commitment to developing a comprehensive energy policy, I have a long history of opposing expanded drilling for oil and gas off of Florida’s coasts and remain opposed today. 

"Ecologically, this exploration could threaten Florida’s unique coastal resources, home to 85% of the United States coral reefs. Economically, it threatens Florida’s $65 billion a year tourism industry which relies on pristine beaches. And strategically, it could compromise our military’s ability to effectively train in the Eastern Gulf while doing next to nothing to reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Adding a fraction of a percent to the global oil supply will not lower gas prices and ignores the critical need to develop alternative energy supplies that finally break our addiction to fossil fuels."

In addition, Cong. Debbie Wasserman Shultz made these comments on Cap-and-Trade legislation: "Economically, it threatens our nation's industry which relies on energy. And strategically, it could compromise our competitiveness with the Far East economies while doing next to nothing to reduce our dependence on foreign bond holders. Subtracting a fraction of a percent to the global temperature will not lower greenhouse gases and ignores the critical need to develop existing energy supplies that will break our addiction to fossilized fools".
