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
