Perry's Energy Plan

Rick Perry has performed terribly in the presidential debates… no argument… but unlike, say Mitt Romney, the energy plan he released today aims directly at the runaway Obama EPA.

Perry’s four main goals are:

  • Expand energy exploration offshore and on federal and private lands across the country by executive order, creating over 1.2 million jobs
  • Eliminate current and proposed activist EPA regulations from the Obama administration, saving 2.4 million jobs by 2020 and lowering projected costs by $127 billion
  • Reduce, rebuild, and refocus the EPA federal regulators, returning authority to the states
  • Level the playing field for all energy producers, removing Obama’s practice of picking winners and losers and ending the Obama war on coal and natural gas production

  1. Energy policy is the Achilles heel of the Obama administration. In three years they have made it more difficult to develop our massive reserves of fossil fuels. Instead they have wasted hundreds of billions of dollars on renewable energy resources–solar, wind, and ethanol from corn–with little to show for the expenditures; while it is obvious none of these resources are economical.

    Perry’s plan as described is simple, can be implemented immediately at the end of January 2013, and won’t cost taxpayers anything. The plan will increase revenue for governments on all levels through royalties, corporate taxes, and taxes from the millions of new employees. This could be the start of a trillion dollar swing in our economy by eliminating $500 billion in energy imports and replacing them with $500 billion in new energy production.

    This has to be a reason businesses won’t expand in the United States because they don’t know whether this madness will continue and they will be unable to compete with countries like China that are using fossil fuels for their future energy. The American electorate should select the Republican candidate who has the best energy plan.

  2. Perry may not be a good debater and he is weak on immigration but his energy plan is a very good one and should be adopted by whomever the Republican candidate turns out to be..

  3. people in nc claim that ohio coal plants helped kill spruce on mt mitchell, in nc.

    did the epa settle that or did the states?? or did it just end up in a federal court anyway??? out of the states hands anyway. shove the power to the states stuff back up the lying orifice it came from anyway.

    what is the annual electricity growth/demand in the us anyway?? 2 percent or less???

    could wind power or/and current thermal generation methods and better grid management do that with only 500 thousand jobs or less??

    obama is a fraud.
