    Scottsdale, AZ – FreedomWorks will release a series of radio ads to draw attention to an annual meeting of share-holder owned electric company CEOs taking place this week at a Scottsdale resort. Some of these companies are supporting cap-and-trade; a potentially catastrophic carbon emissions trading scheme that will raise energy costs, threatens hundreds of thousands of American jobs, and could ultimately destroy U.S. industry. 

    Some of the CEOs attending the Edison Electric Institute's (EEI) annual board meeting seem more concerned with lining their own pockets than the repercussions their shareholders and all Americans would face as a result of a cap and trade system of energy rationing.

     An excerpt from the ad states:

    Today in Scottsdale the CEOs of shareholder owned electric companies are getting together for their annual meeting.  Many support a cap and trade energy rationing scheme that will help their bottom lines, but ultimately make energy more expensive and stick taxpayers with the bill.  This is nothing but another taxpayer-funded bailout.

    The ad buy is part of a campaign launched by FreedomWorks and will hit the airwaves in Scottsdale on Thursday, January 7.  To find out more about the campaign and to hear the full ad, please visit www.freedomworks.org.
