Perry Aims to Charge Up Campaign With Energy-Focused Jobs Plan

Rick Perry, aiming to charge up his presidential campaign and fend off claims that his economic prescriptions are vague, unveiled the first plank of his jobs plan Friday with a focus on domestic energy production.

“This American jobs plan is based on a simple premise: Make what Americans buy, buy what Americans make, and sell it to the world,” the Texas governor said at a steel plant outside Pittsburgh, Pa.

“We are standing atop the next American economic boom — energy — and the quickest way to give our economy a shot in the arm is to deploy American ingenuity to tap American energy. But we can only do that if environmental bureaucrats are told to stand down.”
