Pompeo sees dollars signs in energy exports

In a commentary in Politico, Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, warns against letting politicians and bureaucrats derail the “staggeringly enormous opportunity for wealth creation” offered by hydrocarbon production and pushes back against business and environmental interests that would stall expansion of U.S. energy exports. “Federal policy should not block those who are prepared to risk their own wealth to create an enormous energy export industry here in America,” Pompeo. “The argument here is more than ‘Drill, Baby, Drill’ – it is ‘produce wealth, produce wealth, produce wealth’ – and all the jobs that come with it.”
