Barrow to Vote Against Energy Bill
Thursday, 25 June 2009

June 25--  Congressman John Barrow's office reports he will vote against the Democrat-sponsored energy bill coming up for a vote in the House of Representatives.

Georgia Republicans are challenging Congressman Jim Marshall of Macon not to vote for the bill according to the below info from the state Republican Party.

"Georgia Republican Party Chairman Sue P. Everhart issued the following statement today concerning the Democrats’ massive job-killing energy tax:

 “I am extremely troubled by the Democrats’ national energy tax, which is set to come to a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on Friday. ‘Cap and trade’ is a job-killing bill that will increase the average American household energy cost by more than $1200 a year and endanger American jobs.  During a time of economic uncertainty, Democrats should not increase taxes on hard-working Georgia families. 

“The Georgia voters deserve to know if Congressman Jim Marshall will bow to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrat House leaders to pass this multi-billion dollar national energy tax. The American people want energy independence and a cleaner environment without a job-killing energy tax.  I ask the concerned citizens of Georgia to join me in taking action by calling Congressman Marshall and ask them what they are going to do to stop Speaker Pelosi from taxing our lights out.”
