The US spends approximately $900 billion annually to supply our nation's energy needs. We're sending billions each year to countries with regimes hostile to America and our interests.
The US has abundant supplies of oil, natural gas and coal. We also have brilliant minds working to develop viable, non-traditional energy sources. As your representative, one of my top priorities will be working with other Congressmen to craft policies that clear the way for America's energy independence by 2025.
Increasing energy production in the US will not only create badly needed jobs, it will also take billions of US dollars out of the hands of unfriendly governments and put it back into our economy where it belongs.
