A comprehensive national energy policy is critical to our nation's economy and our national security. Energy expenditures account for about 7% percent of our total economy and influence pricing in the much of the rest of the economy.
President Obama is the kind of politician who puts promises on the record, and then calls that the record. But we are four years into this presidency.The issue is not the economy as Barack Obama inherited it, not the economy as he envisions it, but this economy as we are living it.
