Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas) on Monday afternoon said the Obama administration's opposition to expanding domestic oil production shows that it has a "nothing from below" energy policy, not the "all of the above" policy it advertises.

"The president's energy policy is 'nothing from below,' " Poe said on the House floor. "Nothing from below the ground, nothing from below the sea. We're the only nation in the world that places most of our offshore territory off-limits to oil and gas exploration.

"Meanwhile, the government continues to subsidize failed green energy projects," he continued. "We should be saying 'yes' to all types of American energy. Yes to more offshore drilling, yes to ANWR, yes to faster approval of permits and yes to the Keystone XL pipeline."

The House convened at 2 p.m. Monday and adjourned about 20 minutes later; it will return at 4 p.m. for legislative work.
