(CNS News) — Rep. Rob Andrews (D-N.J.) said that increasing oil drilling “off the coast” is “a problem, not a solution” to creating jobs in the United States. Andrews recommended that House Republicans bring legislation to the floor if they think more drilling will create jobs.
Appearing at a press conference with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) on job creation, Rep. Andrews said, “I agree with my colleague and friend that drilling for oil off the coast is a problem, not a solution, but let’s get back to the main point here that if the Republicans really believe that was really a job-creating idea, why don’t they put it on the floor?”

Clueless Demo Rep. Rob Andrews: More oil drilling is a problem not a solution
Here is a newsflash for Rep. Rob Andrews (D-N.J.). When Americans pull up to the pump and have to pay $4.00 a gallon for gas, that is a problem. Higher gas prices are not a solution. Andrews doesn't believe drilling for more oil here will create more jobs? The truth is more drilling would create thousands of jobs and reduce our national trade imbalance.
