GOP: Obama, Democrats view energy as 'hazardous waste' - The Hill's Video
In the weekly Republican address, Fallin said “our pro-energy policies stand in stark contrast though to the policies supported by President Obama and the Washington Democrats, who seem to view American-made energy as a hazardous waste rather than a resource."
“Millions of Americans remain out of work, but President Obama continues to propose job-killing tax hikes and obstruct the basic energy infrastructure projects that would lead to the creation of thousands of new jobs, not to mention more revenue in state budgets," she said.
“We recognize that the energy industry is a valuable ally as we seek to create jobs and stimulate the economy, and that's why Oklahoma Republicans continue to support the production of all kinds of energy resources."
During a trip to Oklahoma last month, Obama touted his “all-of-the-above” energy plan. During a stop in Cushing, Okla., Obama stressed his support for the southern portion while saying that the rest of the project needs further review.
Fallin said that Obama wrongly took credit for construction of the southern portion of the controversial pipeline and is instead continuing to hold up construction on the northern leg of that pipeline, which she says would have created "thousands of jobs and over a billion dollars in private investment."
