IT'S DOWN TO THE WIRE FOR THIS HUGELY IMPORTANT VOTE.
CUELLAR'S VOTE IS CRUCIAL. (Call 202-225-1640)
PLEASE CALL HIM ASAP!!! ASK HIM TO VOTE THIS BILL HR 2454,
Which will mean higher energy costs to all and especially hurt low income,
They are pressing for every last vote because the media are
reporting that the Dems "have not yet lined up the 218 votes
needed for passage."
What this means is... we still can defeat the Cap and Trade Tax!
The House vote is TODAY and I need you to overwhelm the House
with calls opposing this massive taxing scheme.
+ + Action #1 -- Call YOUR Representative
Rep. Cuellar 202-225-1640
1. "I live in your District and I am urging you to vote NO on
H.R. 2454 -- the cap-and-trade Carbon Tax."
2. Has the Congressmen decided how he or she is going to vote?
3. Please represent my voice and vote NO on H.R. 2454.
+ + Action #2 -- Call other key members of Congress
Obama, Gore and others will be working the phones throughout
the day -- calling the dozens of key Congressmen to get their vote.
We have already identified a list of key Democrats who are the
focus of our fax campaign. Go here to access phone numbers for
these key Democrats:

NOTE ON CALLING a member of Congress from outside their district:

If a staffer tries to reject your call because you do not live
in that Congressmen‚s district, politely tell them you understand
that Obama, Al Gore and others are not confining their calls to
their one Representative and so neither will you.
1. I understand that Congressman ____________ holds a key vote in
today's vote on the cap-and-trade carbon tax -- HR 2454.
2. I oppose the cap-and-trade Carbon Tax. This is an outrageous
power grab by the federal government that will greatly expand
government control and increase energy costs for my family.
3. Especially in these difficult economic times, Congress must
not pass this tax on the American people!
+ + Facts on the True Costs
Heritage Foundations estimates that the cap-and-trade Carbon Tax will:
"Reduce aggregate Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by
"Destroy up to 2.5 million jobs in some years"
"Raise electric rates 90%, gasoline prices by 74%, and
natural gas prices by 55% after adjusting for inflation"
"Raise a typical family‚s average annual energy bill
Thanks for taking a stand!
