RedState's Kevin Holtsberry covered the energy summit today in Columbus, Ohio. See an excerpt of his coverage below:
You don’t have to be an economist to understand the economic situation. Unemployment has hit double digits in many states and is growing (in Ohio: 340,000 jobs lost since Ted Strickland and Lee Fisher took office) and everyone is paying the price. The stimulus has accomplished nothing (Again, in Ohio, in the neighborhood of 100,000 jobs lost since its passage) and yet the Democrats in Congress are intent on making a bad situation worse by passing legislation that would cripple American businesses and devastate families.
The focus lately has been on health care, and for good reason, but energy is an issue that should not be lost in the debate about the economy. Because Cap and Trade (H.R. 2454, the Waxman- Markey bill) is a dagger aimed at the heart of our economy.
