Dear Ms. Tiz:
Thank you for writing regarding the American Clean Energy and Security Act, H.R. 2454. This legislation passed the U.S. House of Representatives on June 26, 2009, and now awaits action in the U. S. Senate.
I voted in support of this legislation to move the process forward and help our region realize the benefits of advancing clean energy technology, while at the same time recognizing that areas for improvement still exist. I appreciate your taking the time to express your specific views, as it will help guide our debate and facilitate important changes to H.R. 2454 as it moves to the Senate.
There are several reasons why we must take the issue of regulating greenhouse gases very seriously, and why we should grapple with this issue within Congress as opposed to leaving this to the whims of bureaucrats in Washington.

A Rat could have written this drivel.
A rat did...
A Rat did. She needs to do a Specter.
An EPA Tranny? Wouldn’t suprise me a bit.
Mary is going to need a job soon.
Someone should explain to this soon to be unemployed ditz that there is a solution to our dependence on foreign oil...use our own!!!!
The Republicans in her district need to get rid of her. From what I understand her district is fairly conservative so hopefully she will get the boot.
Is it time to challenge the EPA, on grounds of using outdated and unproven political science?
Here is proof that just because you were married to a Member of Congress doesn’t mean you should get his seat when it opens up, whether it did because of retirement or death.
>> why we should grapple with this issue within Congress as opposed to leaving this to the whims of bureaucrats in Washington
Hyeah, right. Like there’s a difference?
Mrs/Miss Mack, I call BS!
District is veering left since 2000:
Now it’s up to California to boot her...we will boot all of these turncoats. ALL OF THEM.
Has Ms. Bono ever heard the simple word NO!
It’s called saying NO to tyranny!
It’s called having a backbone.
It’s called having guts.
It’s called having the coyrage of your convictions.
It’s called having principles and sticking by them no matter how hard.
It’s like Peter denying his knowledge of and association with Jesus. And he did it three times!
It’s time to grow a backbone, Ms. Bono.
Say no to tyranny always!
This is horrible. If the EPA is so damned powerful that congress doesn’t control it then it is about time I think we remove that power. The EPA has always played too big a role in drafting regulations which is basically making up law. If you accept the arguments of Mary and others on the Dem side then you can only conclude that the EPA is now of the status of the FED. This is a really interesting development.
The other RINO speaks
Dave Reichert SPEAKS: says Cap and Trade will be good for America
Congressman Reichert called into the David Boze radio show yesterday to explain his reasoning for voting in favor of the Cap and Trade, Waxman-Pelosi bill. He argued that the expense would not be what the Heartland Institute, Heritage Foundation, and Wall Street Journal were predicting. He argued that it would cost around $.48 per day and that we would have better national security, more nuclear, coal and refining capabilities, and a cleaner environment with the bill. He argued that the conservative arguments against were mistaken, and that Washington specifically would be better off even though the bill was imperfect.
Listen to the interview on the web site - AND TAKE THE POLL. He MUST Go 67%
More mush. Get out !
How will she spend her pieces of silver? Because I cannot believe she truly believes this is good legislation.
Which is worse? Corrupt or stupid?
Here’s the real reason IMO:
“Our region is in a unique position: we have vast potential for more wind, solar, and geothermal energy production facilities to be built in Riverside County.”
The Coachella Valley (Palm Springs, etc.) is filled with wind turbines.
Pushing up the ante, I know you’ve got to see me,
Read ‘em and weep, the dead man’s hand again,
I see it in your eyes, take one look and die,
The only thing you see, you know it’s gonna be,
The Ace Of Spades
Not exactly “filled” with wind turbines. A handful off of the I 10, that generate very little energy.
There are 3,218 wind turbines in San Gorgonio Pass near Palm Springs delivering 615 MW (as of Jan. 2008.)
They are notoriously unreliable. And expensive to operate. Solar would make more sense in her district but the electric co & costs make it not workable.
Let's see if I've got this straight. Unaccountable bureaucrats have control, so let's vote to surrender our power to more more unaccountable bureaucrats.
Yep - living midway between Palm Springs (ever more politically active, thanks to the high percentage of same-sexers) and the Hispanic towns of the east Coachella Valley (tons of illegally registered voters, undoubtedly) we see that this area is only a blush of what used to be deep red.
Well, howdy neighbor!
