Newt Says (and I agree): Sign the Petition!

Posted by Ryan on May 29, 2008

Here’s Newt making tons of sense once again:

So, SIGN THIS PETITION from Newt’s American Solutions project to get your voice heard on having a sound, pro-growth energy policy for our nation during these hard times. 

The Warner-Lieberman Bill is a horrible, anti-growth, anti-business bill that is gaining momentum in the Senate not because it is sound policy, but because it is ideological populist environmentalism stuck between the Republicans who don’t want to look mean and the Democrats who want to impose socialism.  Warner-Lieberman is a scary New Deal rehash (which has Barbara Boxer’s mitts all over it) that, according to the Wall Street Journal, “would impose the most extensive government reorganization of the American economy since the 1930s.”  This would unleash so many repercussions that no one could fully see.  We have a global economy — businesses do not have to stay in the USA anymore, and they won’t. 

Drill here, drill now, pay less” is Newt’s mantra.  It’s a private sector solution that will yield faster results with less red tape without attacking our economic and political systems.
