Call Today! Massive Stealth Energy Bill – H.R. 2454

The 111th U.S. Congress is considering a vote this week on the massive, stealth energy bill known as the “American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009.”  H.R. 2454 (soon-to-be H.R. 2998). 

“Americans Cleaned Out with No Energy or Security Act of 2009” would be a more appropriate title.

Over 557 pages (with 300 more pending) this bill represents a massive growth of government and would negatively affect all types of energy generation and use both public and private; all modes of transportation;  all utilities; all building codes; a nd basically every facet of living.   This bill also includes the cap-and-trade scheme which is really a massive tax hike, as well as efforts to curb ‘global warming’.  

Estimated cost per household is over $3100/year.

Given the current economic crisis the country is facing, no one in their right mind would vote for this log-rolled bill.  All of us, including members of AARP and those on fixed-incomes, need to call  their legislators TODAY and tell them to vote NO on the Waxman-Markey bill.   This bill should not see the light of day.
