I’ve been spending a little time, this morning, reviewing email I receive from Boone Pickens group and Barack Obama.
Bear in mind, I am a lifelong Republican, yet it intrigues me that I am receiving weekly emails from Obama’s operation. I have never had this happen from candidates that I actually support. I wrote an article about this a few weeks back. You can view this post by clicking here.
I thought I would share an appeal from Boone Pickens site regarding proposed legislation regarding energy policy contained in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan.
“there are parts that will help us and for that reason I ask for your support. Specific examples include:
- Extension and Increase of the Alternative Energy Production Tax Credit
- Implementation of a Renewable Energy Loan Program for Alternative Energy Manufacturers and Producers
- Implementation of a Natural Gas Tax Credit and possible increase in gas taxes for anything other than Natural Gas
- Implementation of a Battery Credit for Cars
Let's tell Congress that we want this bill as a step in the right direction. You can do so by making a phone call to your Congressional Representative this coming Monday and Tuesday. You can use (202) 225-3121 starting around 9 AM and ask for your Representative. We need to let them know that we care about this issue.”
I would also like to share a couple of video’s from Obama’s websites outlining provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan
The second video is President Obama’s weekly video address on January 24, 2009.
The purpose of this post is NOT one of advocacy, but to share information.
However, this is my call to action: if you are in strong agreement or disagreement with provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan communicate with your elected officials NOW!
I welcome your opinions. Please comment and share your thoughts!!!!
Do not let the talking heads of the media determine the agenda. You can be part of setting the agenda.
