"It's going to take tax reform, but we can't tax our way out of this. It's going to take entitlement reform, but we can't save our way out of this. And we're not going to be able to grow out of this. We need another [way] to make this achievable, and we believe that's energy," said Karen A. Harbert, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Institute for 21st Century Energy. "Every dollar that we generate from energy is a dollar that we don't have to take out of the Defense Department, the entitlement area, or increase taxes."
