Heritage Action for America seeks answers from Burr, Hagan

The Heritage Action for America group wants to know what North Carolina’s two U.S. senators think about increasing domestic oil production. The group sent this action alert today:

As gas prices rise, Senatorial opposition to American oil production is indefensible.
Take Action: Get Your Senators on the Record

For years, dozens of US Senators have opposed increasing America’s oil production. Declining domestic oil production is one factor in the skyrocketing gasoline prices facing Americans.

The US House is doing its part. Now is the time to push those Senators to reconsider their stances: how high will gas prices rise before they consider allowing more domestic oil production? $5 a gallon? $6 a gallon?

You sent them to Washington to work in America’s best interest, now it’s time to hold them accountable. Here’s how:

1. Call your Senators and ask: how high do gas prices need to get before they’ll rethink their opposition to increased oil production?
2. Report your results on our website. We will maintain an up-to-date list of Senators’ stances.
3. Share the intel you’ve gathered with your fellow conservatives to spread the word about Washington’s indefensible opposition to American oil production.

Take the first step: call your Senators and ask them when they’ll support more American oil production.

Together, we can hold Congress accountable.
