We could be drilling offshore tomorrow, but Bush won';t let us. WHY?
In 1990, Bush Sr. signed and EXECUTIVE order banning offshore drilling at the request of Jeb Bush, and other FLorida republicans.
Now congress can change the federal law, but they won't. that means no anwar. But congress cannot do anything about executive orders.
However BUSH, with one signature, can recind his fathers executive order, and we can be drilling the next day. why is Bush refusing to allow the US to drill offshore?
