VIVA LA REVOLUCION!:

With the right policies in place, fracking can contribute to an American economic renaissance and rebirth of manufacturing (Jeb Bush, April 14, 2015, Cleveland.com)

One of the greatest economic transformations in American history is less than a decade old and it's happening right here in Ohio. 

Fracking and other new drilling techniques to unlock vast shale oil and gas reserves deep underground have given new life to cities like Youngstown and Canton. They've produced new wealth for property owners throughout Ohio, but especially farmers. They've put hope in the hearts of workers who've found manufacturing jobs with better pay and benefits.

You would think leaders in Washington would want to take every advantage of this newfound economic boon. But instead, the Obama administration is blocking pipelines, export opportunities and access to drilling on federal lands. If the Obama administration and other liberals had their way, Ohio workers, landowners and taxpayers wouldn't benefit from fracking at all. 

This is a classic example of how bad government policy gets in the way of Americans who are just trying to find good-paying and secure jobs.
