Fax Sent To Senator John McCain Three Days Before His "Drill Now" Announcement

The below fax was sent several days ago to John McCain urging him to break out from his energy non-policy. Did the fax make any difference? Did he or his staff read the fax? I believe so, because it was sent directly to his Arlington, Virginia campaign headquarters.

The point is that Congress is not only persuaded by the 35,000 lobbyists who swarm throughout Washington, D.C. with money stuffed in their pockets.

We can also petition Capital Switchboard Toll Free 1-800-828-0498 for such things as demanding Congress to allow drilling up to 200 miles offshore which is currently being requested by "Rep. John Peterson, a Republican from upstate Pennsylvania whose crusade to fix America's broken energy policy has brought him the interplanetary enmity of environmentalists.

Peterson will try again this week [Wednesday, June 18]to lift the congressional moratorium on offshore drilling when the full 66-member House appropriations committee meets. All he needs is a majority of one --and since his similar effort last year lost by only eight votes, he has hope." Pittsburgh Tribune Review.

Please, contact as many of the below Appropriation Committee Demcocrats as possible, asking them to redeem themselves from so very stupid energy policies they have inflicted on the American public in the past thirty years. (You may want to use slightly different language)
