At an event in Washington this morning sponsored by Bloomberg Government and The Abraham Group, LLC, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (MI-06) called on the United States to dangerously ramp up its domestic oil production and offshore drilling operations.This "drill baby drill" ideology is especially perilous, as it lead to the catastrophic Gulf Coast oil spill last year.

The Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman's statements are not terribly shocking. After all, Rep. Upton received $97,700 in contributions from the oil and gas industry in 2010.
