Update: Cap-and-Trade Vote Count: 210-210, 14 Undecided
Americans for Tax Reform ^ | Friday, June 26, 2009 3:53 PM | Brian M Johnson

Posted on 06/26/2009 1:14:54 PM PDT by Delacon

That's right. We are hearing 210 - 210 with 14 undecided. Keep calling the swtichboard 202-224-3121 and emailing through here to ensure your message gets heard!

Remember: Over the 2012-2035 timeline, job losses average over 1.1 million. By 2035, a projected 2.5 million jobs are lost below the baseline (without a cap and trade bill). Particularly hit hard are sectors of the economy that are very energy-intensive: Manufacturers, farmers, construction, machinery, electrical equipment and appliances, transportation, textiles, paper products, chemicals, plastics and rubbers, and retail trade would face staggering employment losses as a result of Waxman-Markey.

Who are the undecided? We need a list with phone numbers, fax numbers, and e-mail addresses.

Or she’ll vote against the bill so she can bring it back later.

Yeah, it turns out that if it passes, electric costs shoot up, and Al Gore's home's electric usage is too big to fail.

Yes, but any breathing room here will help. They tried to use misdirection with healthcare this week and ram this through. If we can prevent it, it will allow us to further mobilize opposition.

This is not about a bill. It is about all of Congress handing over their power to Obama and Company.

CONGRESS YOU HAVE THE POWER NOW; don’t just throw it away. You will be if you vote for Obamas bills. You won’t have any power if you do.

Red State makes it easier:

Here is a list of the Democrats who need pressuring. They are arranged by state.

Here is a list of the Republicans who need pressuring.

As always, you can go to http://www.redstate.com/action to find out your Congressman’s direct phone number.

Call and encourage your Congressman to vote no on H.R. 2454 — the cap and trade “global warming” legislation.

Keep calling!!!

It ain’t over.

Remember what just happened on Tue, June 16? After being told that session was it for the day, and there would be no votes until the next day, majority Democrats closed the vote — 40 minutes after calling everyone back in, and held a surprise vote.

Never trust a Rat! Keep calling!!

Turns out the Rules Committee inserted 300 pages into the full legislation last night. No printed and properly indexed copy exists in meatspace. Rep. Barton is trying to delay the vote via Parliamentary procedure, not to mention sticking a finger at the Majority for voting on bills that don’t exist, physically, on the House floor.

Just got thru. Provided a concise statement as to how this bill is nothing more than a tax on poor and working class people and will have very little to nothting to do with transforming our energy industry. I called the democratic cloak room number, and left my message for Henry Cuellar

Believe that was an earlier vote that allowed the bill to be brought to the floor. That's not the vote for House passage.

The fight is still on!
