Time to contact your Senators again!


The thieves who've been stealing us blind -- the American Wind Energy Association - Big Wind's lobbyist organization -- are trying to get OUR money once again!

Our Senators need to hear from as many of us as possible TODAY! Tell them to VOTE NO on S2204 -- and ANY other bill that would extend the Production Tax Credit (PTC) & 1603 Cash Grants. 

The Senators Congressional Switchboard number:  202-224-3121 


Or, you can find all U.S. Senators numbers at this website:

We are already $16 TRILLION Dollars in debt! We can NOT afford to throw BILLIONS more to the wind on an antiquated energy source which replaces nothing and, as Obama admitted, "will cause our electricity rates to necessarily skyrocket."
 

This is the FOURTH (4th) time Big Wind's lobbyist organization, AWEA, has managed to coerce the legislation which suits their bottom-line to be added for a vote within Congress in the past few months. Our legislators have wisely said NO THREE (3) times already. Yet Big Wind continues this onslaught against the American taxpayers & ratepayers in their relentless efforts to 'sWINDle' all of us out of BILLIONS more!
 

Tell the Senators they should NOT be trying to pick & choose winners & losers in the energy marketplace!  Whenever they do (i.e. - Solyndra) the only ones who end up losing are the American ratepayers & taxpayers! 


After calling your own Senators, it would be helpful to also call:
 

1.) the Republican Senate leader, Mitch McConnell,
 

2.) the four Democrat Senators who opposed the last attempt to extend the PTC & 1603 Direct Cash Grants in the Stabenow amendment, and tell them to do the same again: 

Joe Manchin (D-WV), Claire McCaskill (D-MO), Mark Warner (D-VA), Jim Webb (D-VA), and,

3.) as many Republican Senators as you have time to call.

I know this gets tiring folks, but our phone calls have been working!  
Their goal is to wear us down!  We can't give up now!  PLEASE - it only takes a few minutes to call, tell the aide who answers the phone to tell the Senator you oppose extending the PTC for Big Wind, and that they should say NO on S2204.  

Thank you!!!
