Cruz, Bridenstine pen op-ed on ‘energy renaissance’

Ted Cruz 2 -- PrezographyBy The Iowa Statesman

 

Presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) penned a joint op-ed in the Tulsa World urging the United States to unleash a great American energy renaissance to empower the private sector to create millions of good, high-paying jobs and give more Americans the opportunity to succeed.

In it, they said, “The energy industry’s future should not be dimmed by a burdensome and overbearing EPA. For the past six years, we have witnessed the results of such crushing regulations and rules, and if we keep going down this path, American jobs will continue to disappear while household costs rise.

“Now is the time to welcome the same ingenuity that propelled the pioneers of America’s energy industry to break through unimaginable boundaries and develop the natural resources we are blessed to possess. If we do, we will empower the private sector to create millions of good, high-paying jobs and give more Americans the opportunity to succeed.”
