Rand Paul Supports New Energy, Cutting Red Tape, and Lowering Energy Costs for Consumers
Washington’s bureaucratic regulations, corporate subsidies, and excessive taxation have made it unnecessarily difficult for energy developers to take advantage of new and innovative forms of cheap and clean energy.
Meanwhile, as Kentucky citizens know all too well, traditional energy sources like coal are routinely demonized as Washington, D.C. attempts to regulate their use into oblivion.
As a U.S. Senator, I’ve fought against President Obama’s out-of-control EPA, which is destroying Kentucky jobs left and right.
I’ve also fought to cut the red tape and encourage energy freedom and new technologies.
I support the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, and I have repeatedly voted to allow this project to proceed.
RESTORE A FREE MARKET IN AMERICAN ENERGY
Like all other sectors of the economy, allowing businesses to compete in a free market will not only produce the most efficient forms of energy, but will also pass along the cost savings to the consumer.
Creating a robust economy depends on the availability of low-cost energy. That depends on Washington, D.C. getting out of the way.
