HARPER RESPONDS TO STATE OF THE UNION
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Rep. Gregg Harper (R-Miss.) issued the following statement this evening in response to the president’s State of the Union remarks regarding energy policy:
“A true all-of-the-above energy approach must balance investments in renewable technologies with increases in domestic oil and natural gas production. By doing so, America can decrease its reliance on Middle Eastern oil, stabilize fuel prices and build a steady supply of American energy. Even more, our country can begin rebuilding our economy by building the Keystone XL pipeline, a shovel-ready project that the president failed to mention in his speech. The president has the authority to approve this project, and I urge him to do so now.”
NUNNELEE RESPONDS TO STATE OF THE UNION
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Alan Nunnelee (R-Miss.) released the following statement in response to President Obama’s State of the Union Address:
“While the President’s rhetoric was at times soaring, it was also disappointing and disconnected from reality. Given that he just got $1.6 trillion in new taxes from the fiscal cliff and Obamacare, I was hoping he would focus on out of control spending. Until we get serious about our debt, we will not see sustained growth and job creation.”
Congressman Alan Nunnelee represents Mississippi’s First Congressional District. He serves on the House Appropriations Committee and the House Budget Committee. This is his second term.
