Americans have the capacity to solve this energy crisis and our nation has been blessed with wonderful natural resources to bridge the gap to the next generation of energy options. We now need those in control of Congress to recognize the capabilities we have at home and respond to the will of the American people.

Rather than vacation, let's have a real vote on our energy future. House Republicans stand ready to act, ready to increase the supply of American-made energy, ready to bring down crippling gas prices. We are here. The American people are with us. So we ask, Madam Speaker, where are you?
