Senate Republicans block heating aid bill

..................." 14 Billion Barrels At a Minimum, DRILL THE DAMN OIL !!"

Washington - Republicans on Saturday blocked the Senate from considering a bill next week that would nearly double federal aid to help the poor pay heating and air-conditioning bills. (Snip)


''The American resources on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts contain 14 billion barrels at a minimum ... more than we have imported from the Persian Gulf in the last 15 years'' said Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M. snip

That is part of what this debate is about," said Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent from Vermont.
