There is an abundance of affordable and reliable energy available in the United States. As many states have demonstrated, unlocking energy production is a sure-fire way to create jobs, grow the economy and increase living standards.
Instead of acting as a roadblock, the federal government must pass laws that remove impediments to further unleashing this incredible resource for growth. Politicians should let the private marketplace—including businesses and consumers—determine which energy sources succeed.
More broadly, government intervention in the energy market has made energy more expensive for families and led to policies that subsidize well-connected special interests. This helps the wealthy while hurting the poor and middle class the most.
For their sake—and for the sake of economic growth—the most abundant, affordable and reliable energy sources should be allowed to flourish.
