LIBERALS CALL TO NATIONALIZE ENERGY SUPPLY
U.S. Rep John Carter (TX-31) today responded to the calls of House Democrats to nationalize American energy production.
"If Democrats in Congress think it is a wise move to socialize our energy supply, Americans need to look no further than Hugo Chavez to see an example of what is to come for our country. This proposal is clearly wrong and goes against every principle of freedom and democracy that defines our great nation. Liberals have made their intentions known, and frightening as they are, you can bet that I will be fighting these proposals every step of the way."
Yesterday, in a Washington Examiner editorial piece, Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) said, "We [the government] should own the refineries. Then we can control how much gets out into the market."
Fox News reported that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said to oil industry executives, "Guess what this liberal will be about? This liberal will be all about socializing-um, uh will be about basically taking over, and the government running all of your companies."
