New York State Senators Gillibrand and Schumer are on the side of high gasoline costs and higher electricity rates.


Senators Mark Udall (D-CO), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Scott Brown (R-MA) and Dean Heller (R-Nevada) have introduced legislation to extend for two years the wind energy Production Tax Credit (PTC).

Chuck Schumer continues to
support welfare for a failed
wind industry. 

This is deceptively labeled as "The American Energy and Job Promotion Act" (S.2201):


Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) has filed S.2204 which extends several renewable energy tax breaks including the wind PTC. It also resurrects the 1603 credit for wind energy.

This bill is marketed as paying for itself by eliminating tax benefits available for the oil industry:

New York State Senators Gillibrand and Schumer will likely be "Aye" for both as they further encourage big wind to take over your community and destroy your home value and  lifestyle.

The passage of these legislations will ensure that the gasoline companies will have an excuse to further raise the price you pay at the pump and will force the failed technology of  wind electricity down our pie holes which result in further increasing rates in your home electricity.

You pay for industrial wind at the federal level.
You pay for industrial wind at the State Level.
You pay for industrial wind by granting PILOTs at the local level.
You pay for industrial wind each time you pay your electric bill.

Add insult to injury, the jobs provided by the industrial wind welfare, thus far, have cost the taxpayers 5.25 million per job. And, that includes the jobs of wind industry lobbyist like NY State's very own Carol Murphy whose job it is to remind politicians that if you are good to Momma, Momma will be good to you.

The tenacity of these green-weenie Washington legislators is only surpassed by the Watertown Pit Bull, who even after being stabbed repeatedly with a kitchen knife and beaten with a five-iron until it became Pit Bull pate', refuse to release from its jaws a terrified Minature Daschund.

These legislators, who are relentless in their effort to pass the production tax credit for wind, need a good five-iron across the forehead to get our message - give it up you bastards, give it up!

I hope you don't mind, I cribbed what you wrote. This is the email I sent to our (Democrat) senators.

The passage of these legislations will ensure that the gasoline companies will have an excuse to further raise the price I pay at the pump and will force the failed technology of wind electricity down our pie holes which result in further increasing rates in my home electricity.

The US cannot afford to waste money on anything. There are many better places to use the money we borrow from the Chinese. Do not support extension of any wind energy credits or incentives no matter what bill it might be attached to.

We will also pay in the loss of value of our homes if they appear on the horizon.

Thanks Schumer and Gillibrand for selling us out to foreign interests.

Chuckles and Gilli like to hear themselves talk, big picture hounds, anything to get in front of a camera or on the news. It's time to vote those dirt bags out of office once in for all.
