Obama hails US energy production over imports

 

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says improved energy efficiency and higher energy production in the United States are yielding environmental and economic benefits that are helping ensure cleaner air and a more competitive business landscape.

In his weekly Saturday radio and Internet address Obama draws attention to increased U.S. oil extraction, which last month exceeded oil imports for the first time in nearly two decades.

He says that represents, quote, "a tremendous step towards American energy independence."

Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin delivered the Republican address, criticizing the 3-year-old health care law. He calls Obama's acknowledgement that he fumbled the launch of the health care enrollment period a phony apology.
