Representative Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania received a standing ovation and enthusiastic chants of “USA!” on the House floor this week for his passionate attack on regulatory red tape. Rep. Kelly passionately argued that excessive, unnecessary regulations must be removed in order to get Americans back to work.
Energy is no exception when it comes to costly, burdensome regulations. In fact, American energy production and manufacturing are directly under attack from Federal agencies like the EPA and Department of Interior. If we want our country to “thrive and not just survive,” then freely-functioning energy markets and domestic energy production are the most effective solutions. Let’s take Rep. Kelly’s advice and create “red, white, and blue jobs.”
