Senators Say Energy Bill Fails Americans

John Kerry held a press conference today with Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., in reaction to the energy bill, which passed the House on Capitol Hill in Washington Thursday July 28, 2005.

The House by a wide margin approved a mammoth energy plan for the nation Thursday that sends billions of dollars in tax breaks and subsidies to energy companies, but is expected to do little to reduce U.S. oil consumption or dampen high energy prices.

    I’m getting the Bush/Cheney hybrid vehicle for my minivan – because it’s true for all vehicles.

    Pamela,
    Re the America Faces Reality discussion. (I can’t find a “Contact Us” option here – am I blind or is it pending?) I am condensing and rearranging the major issues/ideas into something that might work for a blog. What do I do to get it to you? G
