Key Vote "No" H.R. 6604: the Commodity Markets Transparency and Accountability Act

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on H.R. 6604: the Commodity Markets Transparency and Accountability Act.  The bill states that its purpose is “to amend the Commodity Exchange Act to bring greater transparency and accountability to commodity markets” but the consequences of the legislation are greater intervention in markets and an expansion of government into the reach of private contracts.

“Use It or Lose It” Is Not the Way Energy Markets Work

It has been widely reported that the United States faces an energy crisis of epic proportions. This perceived crisis has left Americans facing significant pain at the pump, as the price of gasoline continues to rise and oil prices repeatedly stretch to record highs. In response, politicians from both sides of the aisle have scrambled to offer solutions in an attempt to soothe public anger over the costly impact of higher gas prices.  While Republicans have argued for drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) and the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS), Congressional Democrats responded with a counterclaim: oil companies need to use what they already have.

Key Vote "No" H.R. 6515: Drill Responsibly in Leased Lands Act of 2008

On behalf of the hundreds of thousands of members of FreedomWorks nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on H.R. 6515, the Drill Responsibly on Leased Lands Act of 2008, a bill that would: generate unnecessary federal intervention in the Alaskan oil and natural gas pipelines; impose “use it or lose it” lease restrictions on energy companies exploring for oil and natural gas; and restrict Alaskan oil exportation. H.R. 6515 impedes the efficient expansion of the nation’s energy resources, and would prove harmful to consumers.

Key Vote "No" H.R. 415: a bill to designate the Taunton River as "Wild and Scenic"

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on H.R. 415, a bill to designate the Taunton River as “Wild and Scenic.”  Far from being a bill that encourages responsible conservation, this is a misuse of legislation to impede energy and economic progress.

Key Vote "No" H.R. 6346: Federal Price Gouging Prevention Act

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on H.R. 6346: the Federal Price Gouging Prevention Act.  The bill, a shallow attempt to rein in gas prices, is eerily reminiscent of the very policies that led to shortages and gas lines in the 1970s and early 1980s.  That was a time when government tried to tamper with a market not at the source, where Congress could encourage more exploration and utilize the vast resources available, but at the pump where retailers have very little control over the end price.

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on S. 3036, the Lieberman-Warner “Climate Security Act.”  The Act, which proposes to curb greenhouse gases, would significantly hamstring the economy of the United States by burdening taxpayers and risking thousands of jobs as our global competitiveness vanishes under a flood of regulations, taxes, and higher costs.

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on H.R. 6049, the “Energy and Tax Extenders Act of 2008.”  H.R. 6049 extends more than 30 provisions in the tax code, many of them having to do with energy policy.  The bill attempts to cover the costs of the extensions by raising revenue through changes in the tax law relating to deferred income and the worldwide allocation of interest.  Yet, on net, the legislation generates roughly $2 billion in new taxes.
