Graham Continues Push for Senate Energy Debate


WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the current situation on the floor of the U.S. Senate where Senate Majority Leader Reid continues to block consideration and votes on energy proposals to allow additional offshore drilling and conservation efforts.

 

Graham said:

 

“The Senate is reinforcing every day why it is held in such low standing.

 

“We should be solving problems, like our nation’s growing energy crisis, not going out of our way to avoid debating and voting on them.  It’s truly sad the world’s greatest deliberative body has been reduced to deliberately blocking attempts to debate and cast votes on solutions to our broken energy policies.

 

“I support tax extenders for American families and business.  I support the media shield law.  I support some of the other proposals we may eventually debate.  But we should not have to choose between solving these problems and abandoning our attempts to fix our nation’s energy crisis.  Let’s do all of them.  It can be done.”
