CLAIM: President Obama pledges to pursue a green energy agenda that will create jobs and fuel economic growth.

  • “The good news is, we can make meaningful progress on this issue while driving strong economic growth.  … Four years ago, other countries dominated the clean energy market and the jobs that came with it.  We’ve begun to change that. ” (President Obama, State of the Union Address, February 12, 2013)

FACT: The Obama administration’s so-called ‘green energy’ agenda has destroyed jobs at home, shipped jobs overseas and left American taxpayers holding the bag for millions of dollars in failed pet projects.

BOEHNER QUOTE: “Instead of wasting taxpayer dollars on failed ‘stimulus’ programs, we should be working together on common-sense solutions to expand American energy production and address rising gas prices.  With or without the Democrats’ cooperation, Republicans here on Capitol will continue to work toward this objective.” (Remarks, 3/29/12)
