Romney Etch-A-Sketches on His Policies That Would Hurt Our Energy Independence
- Today Mitt Romney is attacking President Obama’s all-of-the-above energy strategy that’s helping reduce our dependence on foreign oil so families can save at the pump. Romney is trying to Etch-A-Sketch away the past year when he attacked the President’s investments in clean energy. He’s also advocated a backward-looking drilling and drilling alone strategy that wouldn’t allow America to take control of our energy future.
- Here’s the truth: President Obama is leading America toward a clean energy future by doubling renewable energy, helping domestic oil production reach an eight-year high and raising fuel economy standards so families can save at the pump. While there are no silver bullets to the problem of gas prices, the President’s plan is reducing our dependence on foreign oil and creating an economy that’s built to last by out-innovating the rest of the world.

- Mitt Romney can’t Etch-A-Sketch away his policies that would keep America dependent on foreign oil. His energy policy is full of empty rhetoric and bad ideas that would make his Big Oil donors even richer at the expense of the middle class.
Romney has raised more than $750,000 from oil and gas special interests in this election alone. He has no plans to stop giving $4 billion in taxpayer dollars to oil and gas companies that are making record profits.
He has criticized the fuel economy standards that are helping families save at the pump. He also wants to repeal Wall Street reforms that will prevent corporations from manipulating the energy market to profit off of high prices at the pump.
