Dems plan to keep Big Oil out of their backyard backfires

This week Senate Democrats, led by Majority Leader Harry Reid, lost a last minute attempt to maintain a moratorium on oil shale production on federal lands in the Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. . The measure, which was tagged to an economic stimulus package, failed to get the necessary votes to maintain the moratorium.

Apparently Reid, who hails from Colorado, believes that the interior states are somehow more worthy of protection than our nation's coastlines...

The fact that Reid and other Democrats are trying to piggy back this at all is an indication of their unreliability and attempt to sneak in legislation that will not cost them votes in the upcoming November and midterm elections in 2010.
