Update IV:
Norm Dick's is voting YES!! I phoned his D.C. office and the man who answered the phone was SO SO RUDE! He was yelling at me, and attacking me personally. I couldn't believe it.He said that Congressman Dicks thinks it's the right thing to do so to hell with his constituents.

Parker Griffith (D - Alabama)

Mike Ross - (D - Arkansas)
Herb Kohl (D-WI)
Todd Platts (R-PA)

Here we go! Melt the phones! The cap-and-trade bill, HR 2454, is out of committee and the House plans to vote on or by Friday! This is the bill that not only ties the knot in the noose of business and liberty, but will also raise energy costs by approximately $3,900 a year per household! Just what we need: another immense and intrusive government program run by politicians and bureaucrats who don't actually give a damn and who don't have any deep knowledge of these fields. More info here.

From the Tea Party Patriots:

We must call ALL the Blue Dog Democrats and ALL of our Congressional Representatives. Call all their offices and leave the same message.

Simple statement, simple script.
Hi my name is _______________from YOUR TOWN AND ZIP CODE. I am a Tea Party Patriot. I am calling to day to tell Congressman/woman to vote NO on HR 2454. I cannot afford any more taxes. Don't tax me for the air I breath.

Mary Bono Mack (CA)
Mike Castle (DE)
Frank LoBiondo (NJ)
Tom Petri (WI)
Peter King (NY)

Leonard Lance (NJ)

If you are represented by one of these congressmen, contact the memberand tell him/her to oppose Waxman-Markey. The preferred contact method is visiting/calling/writing/e-mailing the member’s local office.


  1. Thanks, Liberty Belle, for all the information! I referred the Puget Sound Conservative Underground members to your site and to Mark Levin's to find this info and to call their Congressman. Obama is having everyone look at the healthcare issue this week so Pelosi can slyly slide this bill through.

  2. I called Congressman Earl Pomeroy(D), North Dakota, (my home state). They said that "As the bill stands" he would vote against the bill. Hopefully the bill doesn't change enough for them to buy him off.

  3. These clowns in DC make me SICK. Adding an amendment in the middle of the night without time to review the bill. It passed the House, of course, with some slick deals promised by Waxman.

    Time to put MAJOR pressure on the Senate.

  4. Liberty Belle-- we need to PROTEST outside Dave Reichert's office in Mercer Island over the July 4 congressional recess. I assume he will be in town and if we can get some media coverage it would be wonderful.

  5. Listen, the cap and TAX bill could still fail, guys! It HAS to pass the Senate vote now. Yes, Congress passed it but now the Senate has to pass it and I'm hearing there's a good chance it won't, so please get on the phone this week and contact your senator and tell them to vote NO on the cap and trade bill.

    Email them, call them, fax them, just keep hounding them. Remind them every day if you have to NOT to vote for this terrible bill.

    If enough of us do this, we may be able to turn this around.

    Here is contact info for Senator Maria Cantwell (copy and paste link below):

    and Senator Patty Murray:

    Keep calling them! Keep emailing them! The cap and trade bill can still be defeated guys! It's not too late. The Senate still has to vote on it.

  6. You can also e-mail the 8 republican traitors. I've included information on how to bypass their zip code filters:


  7. Plz read our open letter to RINO Reichert, and plz make sure and let him hear you on this betrayal!
