GOP should say no on Upton energy and commerce chair

November 29, 2010 09:40

Upton’s liberal voting record is a textbook example of why Republicans were kicked to the curb.  From taxes to energy to federal government land grabs, Upton is no conservative. Call your representative to vote no 202-224-3121 on Upton.

As Connie Hair at Human points out:

“House Republicans are poised to begin making the same kind of business-as-usual mistakes that relegated the party to minority status in 2006.  The most glaring example is the looming threat of having Rep. Fred Upton (RINO-Mich.) become chairman of the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee, despite his liberal voting record, simply because he’s next in line.”

“Upton’s proudest energy achievement is co-authoring the ban on incandescent light bulbs with über-liberal Rep. Jane Harman (D.–Calif.).”

“A closer look at Upton’s energy voting record reveals a job-killing liberal aligned even more closely with Nancy Pelosi on energy and environmental issues.”

The FULL ARTICLE goes on with several examples of why RINO Rep. Upton should not be allowed to assume the powerful position of chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Make your voice heard. Call your representative and tell them Americans cannot afford Upton in the position. The congressional switchboard number is 202-224-3121.
