Republicans kept the pressure on President Obama over high gas prices today, as House Speaker John Boehner demanded that Obama “make good on his rhetoric” and urge the Senate to vote on GOP energy bills.
“Let’s seize on our own common ground and move forward on a path to a real ‘all-of-the-above’ energy strategy,” the Ohio Republican said in the GOP’s Saturday radio address.
Boehner said that Obama — “who has seen gas prices more than double on his watch” — has not pushed legislation that could pass the Democratic-run Senate as well as the Republican House.
Both Obama and the Republican House say they support an “all-of-the-above” energy strategy to combat high gas prices in the long-time.
Obama says the Republicans rely too much on oil drilling, while he would like for the government to invest more in fuel efficiency and alternative energy programs.
