Choose Five Week Vacation Over Energy Relief


WASHINGTON – Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement today after House Democrats voted to adjourn for a five-week vacation.  Congressman Wilson has joined with his fellow Republicans and an overwhelming majority of the American people who support an all-of-the-above, comprehensive energy plan in calling on House Democrats to let their voices be heard.


“Today, House Democrats eagerly began their five week vacation.  It is deeply troubling to me that the Democrat leadership sees no problem in taking their vacation when so many families in South Carolina cannot afford one because of high gas prices.


“House Republicans have introduced legislation, which I proudly cosponsored, that provides for increased domestic exploration, alternative energy innovation, and conservation – a comprehensive strategy that pulls together this nation’s immense natural resources and our rapidly advancing technology to reduce our dependence on foreign oil and build a more prosperous country.


“Let’s have a vote on the Republican comprehensive energy package.  Let’s show American families that their interests are important enough for this Congress to stay here and lower gas prices.”
