ENERGY INDEPENDENCE DAY MESSAGE Americans are ready to lead the world on clean alternative energy.

Americans are ready to declare independence from foreign oil—to strengthen our national security, grow our economy, reduce energy costs, and end global warming. For years, Washington has dragged its feet. Denied the problem. Let oil companies and foreign governments call the shots. The Democratic Congress will take America in a new direction. Our energy independence plan is about harnessing power—the clean, renewable sources all around us—and American ingenuity and can-do spirit. Energy independence means demanding more efficiency and smarter technology for our cars, homes, appliances, and industry. Energy independence means investing in America and our farmers who will fuel a homegrown clean, renewable energy revolution. Energy independence means developing new technologies that create new jobs—in America’s economic backbone, small businesses, and in our innovation industries. Energy independence means working *with* the rest of the world to tackle global warming and open their markets to American solutions. Energy independence means being no longer subject to the whims of countries like Saudi Arabia in how much we pay at the pump or how safe we are in the world. Energy independence is the first step the New Direction Congress will take—with 11 House committees bringing wide-ranging solutions to the table—and a major effort to further address global warming on the agenda for later this year.
