In a phone call moments ago with Blackburn’s staff I learned that unless something changes immediately, i.e. before noon tomorrow, the Democrats have one or two more votes than necessary to pass Cap and Trade/Tax.
Therefore your role is more important than ever.
In a surprise move, Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats have called for a floor vote on the dangerous, anti-growth “cap and tax” climate bill tomorrow.
t would create numerous regulations and spending programs and result in higher energy prices, gas prices, food prices, and unemployment. In our key vote alert to all House members, we cited a Heritage Foundation report that said the direct and indirect taxes created by this bill would approach almost $3,000 a year for a family of four. And real GDP losses would equal more than $9 trillion.
Please call your Tennessee congressman Lincoln Davis today and urge him to vote NO on the Waxman-Markey energy tax bill. He’s wavering. Your call may push him to do the right thing.
