HEADLINE: Offshore drilling ban kills jobs and weakens economy

July 15, 2010 | By Amanda J. Reinecker (heritage.org)

Banning offshore drilling will not clean up the Gulf spill. It will,
however, kill jobs and further devastate our economy. That's why it's a good

registration drives across the state today as part of the Democratic

that OFA-TX has been doing to engage new voters and reach out to 2008 first

town.

dollars to register voters. ACORN claims to have registered 1.3 million new
voters. They must have missed a few ...

The mandate is still in there. But the enforcement is gone. No crime for not paying the fines.
