1. I am disappointed that Speaker Pelosi
is rushing the
cap-and-trade Carbon Tax through the Agriculture
Committee and pushing for a floor vote next week.
2. This bill deserves full deliberation and should not be rushed.
3. I oppose the cap-and-trade Carbon
Tax. This is an
outrageous power grab by the federal government that
will greatly expand government control and increase
4. Especially in these difficult economic times, Congress
must not pass this tax on the American people!
Once again, the Left is fast-tracking its agenda.
Thanks for taking a stand!
Steve Elliott, President
P.S. Why is Pelosi pushing for the final
House Vote by next week?
Vacation, of course! She wants to clear her plate before she goes
on vacation... so that when they return they can fast-track
socialized healthcare. Please take action by faxing Congress now:
