Marco Rubio: The White House got it wrong on oil drilling

Incoming Florida Sen. Marco Rubio says he doesn't support the administration's decision to back off on offshore oil drilling.

"I believe offshore oil exploration should continue to be part of America's energy mix, so long as it can be done safely," Rubio said. "I believe the administration's new policy is an obstacle to job creation and imperils our national security by making us more dependent on foreign oil from hostile regimes. On this
issue, the White House should have left politics out of the equation and based its decision on sound energy policy that advances our economic development and national security goals."
