Don't like $140 per barrel oil? Tell Frank Wolf

This pretty much sums up where we're at in terms of energy, thanks in no small part to President Bush's complete inaction the past 7 1/2 years to break our "oil addiction." And remember, as you pay $4 per gallon at the pump, that Frank Wolf has been there to rubber stamp Bush every step of the way. Remember:

*Wolf has voted repeatedly to maintain tax breaks for Big Oil, even while those companies pollute the environment and rake in record profits.

*On January 18, 2007, Frank Wolf voted against H.R. 6, the "Creating Long-Term Energy Alternatives for the Nation Act."

*On December 6, 2007, Frank Wolf voted against H.R. 846, "Providing for the Consideration of the Senate Amendments to the Bill (H.R. 6), Creating Long-Term Energy Alternatives for the Nation Act." Again, what does Frank Wolf have against the environment and energy security?

*Wolf has voted time and again against clean, renewable energy.

*Those votes have earned Wolf dismal ratings from the League of Conservation Voters - a 27% average over the past 5 years. Awful.

If you don't like Frank Wolf's record on energy issues, you can contact him at these phone numbers or by email. Even better, you can support Judy Feder for Congress and get a representative who's more concerned with you than with Big Oil.
