AMERICANS FOR ENERGY SECURITY AND INNOVATION RELEASES NEW WEB AD: “HYPOCRISY”
Washington – Americans for Energy Security and Innovation today released a new web ad that highlights President Obama’s hypocrisy on the Renewable Fuel Standard. The Renewable Fuel Standard is America’s most successful energy policy that has helped to create 850,000 new jobs and reduce our dependence on foreign sources of oil.
“President Obama once called the Renewable Fuel Standard a ‘key’ part our energy strategy, but now his administration is trying to gut this successful energy policy. The president’s stunning hypocrisy puts the critical investments that have been made in rural American at risk and threatens the hundreds of thousands of good jobs that have been created by the RFS. It’s time for the president to honor his commitment to the RFS and provide greater leadership on promoting domestic renewable fuels,” said Americans for Energy Security and Innovation Chairman and former United States Senator Jim Talent.
Narrator: 850,000 thousands jobs. Billions invested in rural America. Our dependence on foreign oil cut by a third.
The Renewable Fuel Standard is America’s most successful energy policy.
President Obama called it a key part of our strategy. Reducing our overall dependence on oil.
But now, Obama has proposed gutting the RFS and going backward. There is a word for that: hypocrisy.
Tell President Obama it’s no time to surrender America’s leadership on renewable fuels.
