GOP's Hayes: Coastal Drilling Long Welcomed News

From the Hayes for Congress campaign (2nd District)...

CHICAGO: The following statement was released today by Isaac Hayes, GOP Nominee for Congress in Illinois' 2nd district, in response to President Obama's announcement to open American coastlines to oil and natural gas drilling.

"The President's announcement to allow drilling along America's coastline is long welcomed news. The off shore drilling ban has been an unwanted and unneeded moratorium on energy exploration. For years, Republicans have pushed for energy independence by utilizing the vast resources God has blessed our nation with. While I am pleased that America's plea for freedom from dependence on sponsors of terror is finally being heard, I am cautiously optimistic that this is not a smoke screen for a soon to come cap-and-trade bill jammed down our throats."
