Democrats Lack Votes to Extend Drilling Ban

Michael Steel, a spokesman for Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), slammed the idea of a nationwide offshore drilling plan that did not provide incentives to states to support it.

“Any offshore drilling plan that does not include revenue-sharing is a sham,” Steel said. “It will produce no new American energy. It’s another transparent attempt to give their Members political cover.”

Minority Whip Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) said the American public is starting to realize who is in charge and that Congress has not done anything. “It makes a big difference for our candidates around the country,” he said.
