Is the House GOP pushing the newest corporate bailout?

Posted on December 3, 2012 by Donald Ferguson

The “fiscal cliff” coming in just days could mean massive tax hikes that kill honest energy businesses.

But Big Wind lobbyists are using the crisis to bail out Gang Green environmentalists.

They want Congress to continue the so-called “Wind Production Tax Credit,” a handout created 20 years ago to help the wind energy industry “get off the ground.”

Two decades later the wind energy industry hasn’t gone anywhere.  Wind energy is a proven expensive failure, but politicians are continuing to hand them political favors while punishing honest energy employers.

Even worse, it appears Republicans will be the ones to bail out failing wind corporations while letting productive energy employers die at the hands of tax hikes and overregulation.

“(M)any House Republicans want to see the credit extended. With 81 percent of wind installations in GOP districts, there are a number of members who are under pressure to ensure the tax break survives,” The Hill reports this morning.

It’s up to you and I to stop them.  Again.

Please call your Congressman right now at 202-224-3121.

Tell them to REJECT any effort to extend the “Wind Production Tax Credit.”

We shouldn’t bail out expensive failures while letting affordable energy and good jobs die.  We need to save good jobs and affordable energy.

Call right now.

Sincerely,

Donald Ferguson
