Meeting our energy demands will help families and seniors afford household bills and enable job providers, especially in agriculture and manufacturing, to prosper. Likewise, escalating gas prices are best solved by increasing supply here at home. An aggressive pro-energy position includes the following:
* Expand domestic oil resources by enabling offshore drilling with advanced oil rigs.
* Enable the use of clean emission energy - such as nuclear power.
* Oppose Cap-And-Trade legislation, which amounts to an enormous new national energy tax.
* Oppose tax increases on energy production and consumption.
