King calls for Americans to make pilgrimage to DC

Monday, August 18, 2008

Western Iowa Congressman Steve King this week called upon Americans to engage in the battle for energy solutions with him and Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives.

On Aug. 1, Congress adjourned for five weeks, without passing legislation to allow domestic exploration for oil to reduce our dependence on foreign oil and lower gas and all energy prices.

"We all know the old axiom - those who don't vote have no right to complain about the actions of elected officials," King said. "In this case, if Americans don't make their voices heard by calling or visiting the Capitol to join in the Republican protest for San Francisco Speaker Nancy Pelosi's refusal to allow a vote on expanding domestic oil production, the same applies. Don't be surprised by $5 or $6 per gallon gas."
