Issue Position: Develop a Comprehensive Energy Policy

Some politicians in Washington want us to think that energy policy is too complicated for us to understand. It's not. We need to drill, drill, drill here at home. We have new finds and promising reserves that could supply our energy needs for decades or more. We should already be drilling in ANWR. We should be making the most of the oil discoveries of the last few years.

We need a comprehensive approach as well. One that includes nuclear energy, wind and solar, and conservation. But this should be a market-based process, not one based on caps and taxes. Energy taxes and more regulation are not the answer to providing for our energy needs. I strongly oppose the cap and trade bill (cap and tax).
