Obama’s Surge in Foreign Oil Dependence Program [Reader Post]

As Glenn Reynolds might say, “They told me that if I voted for John McCain the US would become even more dependent on foreign oil and they were right.”

Following the Deepwater Horizon disaster, Barack Obama put a moratorium on deep water drilling. Then he extended the moratorium and delayed the sales of oil leases in Alaska.

Federal Courts overturned the original moratoriums and Obama went ahead and issued another moratorium and has ignored the Court rulings since then.
