Senate Allows ANWR Drilling 51-49

--posted by Tony Garcia on 3/16/2005

It seems that the GOP is finally acting like a party in the majority AND standing up for what is good for the country. They have opened the door for ANWR drilling. (Read story here)

Of course John Kerry had to chime in.

...argued that more oil would be saved if Congress enacted an energy policy focusing on conservation, more efficient cars and trucks and increased reliance on renewable fuels and expanded oil development in the deep-water Gulf where there are significant reserves.

Haven't California and Oregon already learned the folly of forcing fuel efficient cars?

"As more and more hybrids hit the road, cash-strapped states are warning of rough roads ahead." (More info)

"The fact is (drilling in ANWR) is going to be destructive," said Kerry.

Kerry again says things already proven false. The Caribou population that was supposed to be decimated by the Alaska Pipeline has flourished. (He needs to fire whoever is doing his research...he is constantly wrong.)

----------
UPDATE: Sen Coleman voted against the drilling. He voted with the likes of Snowe, Clinton, Kennedy, Kerry and Boxer. Disgraceful. Good thing both Senators from the liberal state of Hawaii joined the side of reason. (Roll Call Vote)

When has the idea of hybrids, biodiesel or alternative fuel sources been considered "a terrible idea" by anyone other than the oil industry that has the most to lose?
