Our choice is to have a secure source of oil or watch the Chinese burn it? Why didn’t anyone tell us?
In a draft letter to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), Sen. Schumer writes:
I respectfully urge you, in your capacity as chairman of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), to withhold approval of this transaction to ensure U.S. companies reciprocal treatment.
Similarly, Rep. Pelosi is now sounding alarms of concern. In a statement, Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hamill said:
This deal prompts great concern about the Chinese government’s continued attempts to use its state-owned enterprises to acquire global energy resources.
Greens need not worry – once he’s reelected, Obummer will kill it again. This stick in the spokes is intended to keep the issue on the back burner until November and then it’ll be business as usual.
