Press Release

MIAMI— Today Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi is in sunny South Florida promoting her new book, while Americans continue to struggle at the pump.  Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) made the following statement: 

“Speaker Pelosi and her fellow elitists may not care about the price at the pump, but all the Florida families and businesses who are suffering sure do,” Diaz-Balart said. “Instead of promoting her book here in Miami, the speaker of the Democratic Do-Nothing Congress should be working to address the high energy costs hurting Florida families and killing our economy.”

According to a Politico article yesterday, Speaker Pelosi refuses to bring any comprehensive energy plan to the House floor for a vote.
