Remember Romney's energy plan to turn energy development on federal public lands over to the states? If he had been elected, there would already be uranium mines in the Grand Canyon, strip coal mining in Bryce Canyon, oil and gas drilling in Arches National Park, oil rigs in Theodore Roosevelt National Park and natural gas wells in the Grand Tetons.<quoted text>lol! The only time they really cared whether it was open is when the cons shut it down!!!
How idiotically reich wing ironic and appropos!
When Obama banned uranium mining on public lands surrounding the Grand Canyon, John McCain called it a “blow to job creation”.
The GOP platform last year explicitly questioned whether public lands “could be better used for ranching, mining, or forestry through private ownership.”
