House Democrats on Energy

I received a media advisory from Congressman Kanjorski’s office. It stated that on Monday, April 28, he will be holding a press conference at a local gas station to discuss rising gas prices. It will be held at the Sunoco Gas Station located at 531 S Main Street in Wilkes-Barre at 11:00 a.m.

It is about time someone start talking about gas prices. When the Democrats took control of congress in 2006, they pledged to lower energy costs. Gas is about $1 more per gallon that it was when the Republicans had control of Congress.

Recently, The Republican Leadership called out the Democrats on exactly this. The Republicans rightfully stated that Speaker Pelosi and the House Democrats said they had a plan to lower energy costs. They repeatedly talked about this plan during the 2006 election. The problem is, they have not produced this supposed plan. Republicans Leaders stated that they wished to begin discussing and debating this plan and asked for a copy. Speaker Pelosi has yet to acquiesce. Perhaps Congressman Kanjorski can shed some light on this 2 year old plan that has yet to be disclosed to the full house or the American public.
