ABSTRACT
The article discusses the issue on drilling bill as a national campaign to expand domestic energy production. It cites on how the bill became already a political slogan for the 2008 U.S. Election where many Republican running for the Congress oversees it as their strategic edge over the Democrats, however, the boosting of domestic oil production has no significant effect for domestic fossil fuel development and exploration. Consequently, it notes that the House Democrats has introduced a limited pro-drilling act of their own as resistance to President George W. Bush's administration to lift a ban on drilling the outer continental shelf.
