For weeks now, Congress has debated President Obama’s big government energy agenda and specifically, his continued efforts to implement a backdoor cap and trade scheme through the massive EPA bureaucracy that he controls.
Energy prices, including ever-skyrocketing gasoline prices at the pump, continue to climb in the wake of Obama’s irresponsible actions and it is clear that NOW is the time for Congress to act.
The Energy Tax Prevention Act of 2011 (S. 482 in the Senate & H.R. 910 in the House), authored by Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) and Representative Fred Upton (R, MI-6), would stop Obama’s cap and trade scheme by completely stripping the EPA of its ability to use the ‘Clean Air Act‘ to regulate greenhouse gases. This is important legislation that would take serious steps towards addressing high energy cos ts and ensuring America’s energy security.
The U.S. House of Representatives took the first step and passed H.R. 910. Thanks to grassroots pressure from limited-government activists like you, this legislation passed by an overwhelming margin…but now the battle moves to the U.S. Senate.
It’s time to demand that the Senate hold a vote on The Energy Tax Prevention Act of 2011.
