TV Ads: Members of Congress Who Caved in to Special Interests

Last week, Environmental Defense Action Fund launched a hard-hitting new campaign targeting members of Congress who opposed the American Clean Energy and Security Act. The ads call them out for their failure to help reduce America’s addiction to imported oil.

Steve Cochran, director of EDAF’s national climate campaign, said this:

This is a sustained campaign to educate the public. The public should know when their elected representatives vote against their interests.

Opponents of this bill have based their campaign on phony numbers and scare tactics. We’re going to beat them with the facts. As this bill moves to the Senate, we are focusing on letting constituents know who is ready to take action to cut imported oil and who just wants to talk about it.

The ads will run through the end of September, and you can see them online:

    If they do not target Congressman Pomeroy, they effectively leave a green light to Sens Conrad and Dorgan to vote against any similar cap and trade. That is a huge mistake as both Conrad and Dorgan will find ways to dodge.
