**ACTION ALERT** Cap & Trade HR 2454 Coming Up for a Vote!

The Cap and Trade bill (H.R. 2454) is coming up for a vote on the House floor at any time after 9:30am EST today and COULD be voted on this Friday, June 26! before It is unclear when the Senate will vote on the bill, so our Senators need to be contacted also.

Unfortunately like the so-called stimulus

H.R. 2454 is yet another stealth bill
On the fast-track in Congress, meaning it will not be read or debated
Unknown quantity of other bills being embedded by amendment process
Will not / cannot be read prior to a vote based on its size, prior to a vote

Cap-n-trade will be devastating to our economy and citizens and when combined with numerous other amendments, a disaster of epic proportions


Effective action steps:

Most effective means of contact is fax or phone call. (Numbers to call below)

When you call your district / state representative, be sure to provide your zip code so they know you are a constituent
Remember to be polite and tell them what you think, make as many calls as you can.
Try to get on talk radio today about the issue
Forward this message to anyone you think would call

Goal of our calls, faxes, and emails:

Members of Congress should, at minimum, work to delay the vote
We want to see visible, vocal, and articulate opposition to such damaging legislation

Talking Points to use:

Sen. Harvey Waxman, one of the bill's co-sponsors admitted he doesn't know the bill's content; he's relying on "experts"
Is projected to cost at least $3,100 per household in increased utilities
Will negatively impact public and private energy generation, transportation, building codes, appliances, and more
Is projected to lower gross domestic product
Will cause a loss of jobs
Impacts most aspects of our daily lives
Will hurt small business
Creates a "climate exchange", a commodity-type market based on nothing of real value, literally on carbon credits

Targeted Republicans who need calling:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Energy and Commerce Committee chairman Henry Waxman are reaching out to the following House Republicans for their support on Waxman-Markey, according to Carbon Control News:
