Skip to comments.Senator Bill Nelson (Rat - FL) Response to Energy Crisis.
Posted on 04/30/2008 3:50:51 PM PDT by Jacquerie
A couple of weeks ago I emailed the following to my FL congress crittters.
How high must fuel and food costs go before you reverse your opposition to domestic oil drilling and support for Soviet style ethanol tariffs and subsidies?
Here is what Sen Bill Nelson (Rat - Fl) had to say:
Thank you for contacting me regarding drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. I oppose drilling in the Arctic Refuge.
As a native Floridian, I realize the importance of protecting our natural habitats and preserving environmentally sensitive lands. Just as I oppose drilling off Florida, I oppose drilling in the Arctic Refuge. I believe the only real solution to our long-term energy needs is reducing our nation's consumption of oil, developing reliable alternatives to oil, and learning to conserve and use energy more efficiently.
I appreciate your taking the time to be involved and informed about this matter. Please do not hesitate to contact me again."
And the Florida GOP handed him his seat. WTG, Florida - electile dysfunction forever!
thank you for contacting me. as a stupid democrat, i am opposed to anything that is good for america. i believe what my globalist masters have told me to say regarding oil.
like other floridians, when you have to park your car permanently because you can no longer afford $20.00 a gallon gas, remember what a good thing that is for our habitat.
please don't hesitate to contact me again in the future
your senator for now,
bill (a$$clown) nelson
Nothing in his response that would increase oil production one barrel. I doubt that any of his alternative sources of energy would include nuclear. Just your typical rat response.
Hi Jacquerie, I write this liberal moron and the RINO Mel Martinez at least weekly and get the same lame canned responses regardless of the message. Whatever did we do to deserve such idiots for Congresscritters?
The Democrats are complete and utter idiots. They obviously don't think they'll be impacted when utility costs go thru the roof due to shortages.
Democrat personal energy generator.
I don’t know what we did to deserve such awful governance.
We elected them.
