A no-controls energy oolicv can be summed up in two words - higher prices. The Republican theory is that by raising the prices of petroleum products so high that the average American worker can't afford to buy, we can conserve energy supplies and therefore become independent of the OPEC cartel and their price-fixing strategy. That's the same theory that says if you raise the price of medical care high enough, people won't become sick. What we're really discussing, on this most critical ingredient in our economy, is simply an abandonment of the Federal government'sproper role and responsibility to protect the American people from forces in part, beyond their control.

This total - lost revenues and expenditures due to unemployment - is as high as the )rojected budget deficit fc~r this '~ear.
