Blocking Expanded Off-Shore Drilling Is Missed Opportunity

Editor:

I am writing today to express my displeasure with the Senate’s recent blocking of expanded off-shore drilling.

The fact that our elected officials can’t come to a conclusion about what to do is truly disappointing.

In an economy that is job thirsty, this is a missed opportunity. We can create more jobs, grow our economy, and enhance our nation’s energy security.

Depending on foreign nations is not always going to be convenient and Americans need affordable oil. We must act now and become self-sufficient because relying on unstable countries is not a responsible choice.
