we have enormous reserves of both gas and oil, but the traitor in the white house doesn't want America to use them.

gas and oil will never be cheap again. get used to it. no matter how much is there, the cost of getting it to market will not drop. Take your blinders off. more reason that our corrupt PA governor should be taxing it instead of sckrewing the resdients of PA by giving it away. the marcellus drilling would create few jobs for PA residents, as those specialty drillers will bring in their own seasoned crews. open your eyes. Corbutt is against us.

Thanfully President Obama doesn't trust Pa. State Republicans to oversee safe gas drilling in Pa.

Gov. Corporate already told the public he wouldn't touch gas drillers because it would cost his party campaign cash in 2012.

Bill Shuster says that Marcellus Shale will be good for Franklin County. How?

Is he going to pass legislation to hold the gas industry accountable for compromising the enviroment that will create health and safety issues for the residents of Pennsylvania?

When do Corporations ever put people before profits? And why don't our politicians hold these Corporations accountable for the lives they destroy?

That's an easy one; because the corporations own the politicians.

And we vote for the politicians. The Corporations might have the big money but we are the ones who vote for them.

Don't worry, you'll be able to see Marcellus drilling in action at your nearest State Park. One Term Tom our Chief Gashole in Charge will make sure that all State Parks and forests will be open for drilling.
