In his weekly radio speech, John McCain today said:
Last week, the President finally lifted the executive ban on offshore oil and gas exploration, and called on Congress to lift its ban as well. The Congress now has the sole power to lift the ban, but so far they just can’t be bothered to get around to it. Lifting that ban would seriously lower the price of oil — and Congress should get it done immediately. As a matter of fairness to the American people, we need to drill more, drill now, and pay less at the pump.
Great line — I’m sure Newt Gingrich is grateful to have McCain on his side.
