Why so supportive?

Why is State Representative Jim Buchy and his fellow party members so supportive of fracking? Most of the gas and oil found in shale is being sold to China. The pipelines are for the sole purpose to get the gas and oil to the tankers on the coast. We have over 150 abandoned gas and oil wells in Darke County that could become injection wells for dirty water from shale drilling. Why should we become the toilet for Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Northeastern Ohio? Don’t let them take the chance of contaminating our water supply. They don’t know what it will do over time.

Who will benefit? The Maid Rite may, when the truck drivers stop for lunch.
