Dear Editor,

Ohio citizens should vote to use our nation’s energy resources.

The vast majority of Ohio electricity is generated by coal. EPA regulations passed by appointed officials takes our voice out of this decision. This will cause increased costs for everyone from auto manufacturers to household dinner table budgets.

The Obama Administration has also complicated the permitting process so as to reduce drilling permits issued by 50 on federal lands and waters. He claims oil production is up, but only because of drilling in shale formations on state and privately owned land.

Voters should support energy freedom to speed America’s recovery and ensure future growth.

A graph from the August 18, 2012 Wall Street Journal shows taxpayer subsidy of production and the consumer cost of electricity.
