NUKES AND OFFSHORE DRILLING PROPOSED IN REPUBLICAN CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS
Let's open up portions of the US coastal waters to oil exploration, but only in areas represented by Republicans.
We agree that there should be more domestic production of oil, but we also believe that those who advocate drilling should live with the consequences.
Our proposal would open up the entire Florida coast to drilling, as well as the area off Santa Barbara.
The drilling would be allowed starting March 1, 2009.
Opposition to our proposal is expected from Republicans whose districts include coastal areas that would be opened to drilling.
We also suggest allowing new nuclear power plants in states where both their US Senators are Republican.
This ought to sort out real fast the degree to which there is support among Republicans for off-shore drilling and new nuclear power plants.
