AFP Hosts Townhall on Gas Prices with Cong. Joe Walsh

March 16, 2012 J

AFP-IL was pleased to be joined by Cong. Joe Walsh last night for a town hall meeting on rising gas prices and energy policy. Cong. Walsh led a highly interactive discussion with dozens of attendees highlighting the need for increased domestic energy production, including approval of the Keystone XL pipeline and further exploration offshore, to make America less dependent on foreign sources of oil. AFP-IL state director David From criticized the Obama Administration for distorting the free market by picking winners and losers in the energy sector, highlighting the $535M loan guarantees to now- bankrupt solar company Solyndra.
