Key Vote NO on HR 1252, The Federal Price Gouging Protection Act

On behalf of nearly 850,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I respectfully urge you to VOTE NO on H.R. 1252, the Federal Price Gouging Protection Act sponsored by Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI). This legislation would make it a federal crime to sell crude oil, gas, natural gas or petroleum at a price that is “unconscionably excessive” or “takes unfair advantage” of unordinary market conditions. This legislation mandates severe fines for any violations including market manipulation, false price reporting and unconscionable prices.

Support True Competition for Internet Consumers

Please contact your legislators and ask them to support H1587, a bill currently before the North Carolina legislature.  This bill would make it difficult for local governments to get into the telecommunications market. H1587 would make it harder for local governments to use your tax dollars to enter the telecommunications market, improve transparency and reduce unfair advantages for for government entrants.

Impact of Rising Gas Prices

With all the hype around the "driving season" and legislation on the House floor seeking to fix price gouging, I thought this article from USA Today was appropriate. It looks at the individual economic impact the rising prices have on consumers with most economists concluding that, while an inconvenience, the impact is fairly limited. Read more about it here

Edwards Cashes in on Poverty

John Edwards, who speaks of there being "two Americas" has run his presidential campaign largely on the theme of eradicating poverty in this country and throughout the world. For children who want to go to college, Edwards promises to remove "every financial barrier." Yet at a recent speaking event at UC Davis, Edwards speaking fee was a whopping $55,000. Sounds more like he is profitting on the very people he is professing to help. Read more about Edwards and his battle against poverty here

Presidential Candidates on Climate Change

A recent MSNBC article breaks down where most presidential candidates stand on legislation addressing climate change and carbon emission. It mentions that on the Republican side, Sen John McCain is the only candidate to endorse caps on carbon emission.

Midsession calls, mailings target lawmakers

BY David Steves

While Wayne Scott the House minority leader was engineering a floor vote to boost the number of Oregon State Police troopers, Wayne Scott the political action committee director was ordering thousands of direct-mail "hit pieces" and "robo-calls" sent to voters' mailboxes and home telephones, all lashing their Democratic representatives for not supporting the legislation.
