Tell Congress: No offshore drilling


It's time to state the obvious: Off-shore drilling is not a serious idea to reform our energy policy. The Government's own Energy Information Administration points out that this oil won't be available for decades and the total quantity is an "insignificant" drop in the bucket on the world oil market.

The only groups that benefit from McCain's offshore drilling idea are big oil companies like Exxon-Mobil which are already making record profits. So why does John McCain like this cockeyed idea? Maybe because, as the Wall Street Journal reports, "McCain does lead all other senators, and all others who ran for president, in contributions from the oil and gas industry..."

But how much does YOUR Senator get from oil and gas? Whose side will they vote on if offshore drilling comes up for a vote?
