    Help Oppose Cap and Trade - Attend the Energy Citizen's Rally in Tampa

    08/25/2009

    As I’m sure you’ve seen, President Obama’s healthcare reform campaign has been dominating the airwaves and town hall meetings around the country.  It cannot be underestimated how important it is to stop this big government scheme.

    But it is equally important that we don’t let up pressure against another threat: Cap and Trade.  More accurately called “Cap and Tax” – this legislation has already passed the House and will be in the hands of the Senate when they come back from the August Recess in September.  Please help spread the word about the Cap and Tax plot by attending the Energy Citizens’ Rally in Tampa, on August 27 at the Ritz Theater.  Doors open at 11:00 am and there will be hamburgers and hot dogs for all.

    This will be a great opportunity to learn more about how proposed cap and trade legislation, like the Waxman-Markey bill which recently passed the U.S. House of Representatives, could impact your wallet and what you can do about it.  We know that if something like Waxman-Markey passes out of the Senate, and the President signs it into law it means lost jobs and a massive new energy tax for American consumers – just when our economy can afford it least!

    You can learn more about the Cap and Tax scheme as part of FreedomWorks’ August Recess Call to Action.  Be sure to download the action kit and check out the map for town halls and citizen action rallies (in green) near you.  Click “Page 2”  to see more – there are too many to fit on one page.

    Finally, if you haven’t already, please be sure to TAKE ACTION and tell your legislators to oppose cap and trade schemes like Waxman-Markey.  Thank you for your ongoing vigilance on this important issue.
