KENNEDY STATEMENT ON LANDRIEU ENERGY PLAN: "MORE TALK, NO ACTION"
Republican United States Senate candidate John Kennedy today released the following statement in response to a new senate plan co-sponsored by Mary Landrieu to create yet another commission to study our nation's energy crisis.
"After casting party line votes against oil shale development and drilling in the OCS, Mary Landrieu today had the audacity to announce her solution on energy is another commission to study the problem, while imposing a massive tax hike on our families. Mary Landrieu's plan on energy is outrageous, and it's why Louisianans are fed up with Washington politics as usual."
"Even worse, this last minute shell game of commissions, hybrids and tax hikes was dropped at our doorstep after Washington politicians like Mary Landrieu voted to leave Washington for summer vacation having done nothing to meet the energy needs of families who are hurting. The record now shows that when it counted, Mary Landrieu sided with extremists against drilling and put party politics over our energy needs as gas prices skyrocket."
"As Senator, I will never play politics with our energy needs."
