|MAXimum power grab.|
Dear ATP supporter,
This is it!
After nearly two weeks of delaying in search of 60 votes to save the EPA’s unchecked power, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has scheduled a vote THIS AFTERNOON, 4:00 P.M. ET on several amendments to a small business bill — including Sen. Max Baucus’ sham amendment that pretends to protect jobs, but only protects EPA bureaucrats.
If Baucus succeeds in this attempt to scam citizens, the EPA’s power to regulate carbon dioxide means lost jobs, higher prices and lost freedom.
Your phone calls and contributions to American Tradition Partnership are working. Keep it up. We have been able to hold them off for nearly two weeks.
As you recall, Baucus is pulling his usual D.C. tricks, offering an amendment offering what barely amounts to protection from EPA tyranny to only a few select employers.
The idea is to let Gang Green’s vulnerable senators vote for his fake amendment so they can campaign next year as job protectors.
In reality, it’s not real protection, you can bet it will be revoked once the 2012 election is over and the idea is to drain support away from an amendment originally authored by Sen. Jim Inhofe to strip
Obama’s EPA activists of their power to regulate and cap carbon dioxide as a toxic pollutant.
The vote is JUST HOURS AWAY and Gang Green’s Gucci-shoed, silk-pocketed lobbyists are twisting every arm, pulling every trick and offering boatloads of campaign cash in search of that 60th vote.
I need you to do two critical things IMMEDIATELY.
1) Call your two senators (again, if you have already called) at 202-224-3121. Tell them to vote NO on the Baucus EPA amendment and YES on the McConnell/Inhofe amendment.
2) Go here or to https://secure.americantradition.org and help me keep up the pressure by chipping in $100, $50, $35 or just $10. Every gift, no matter how big or small, goes a long way.
Again, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has scheduled a vote as early as 4:00 p.m. on Max Baucus’ sham amendment intended to save the EPA by killing jobs in his state, and yours. YOUR IMMEDIATE SUPPORT IS CRITICAL.
Please take just a second to call your two senators, and to go here or to https://secure.americantradition.org to chip in $100, $50, $35 or just $10.

P.S. Harry Reid has been struggling for two weeks now to find that 60th vote for Max Baucus’ sham amendment. Your support has made all the difference.
Reid and Gang Green’s lobbyists have scheduled the vote in just a few hours. They’re working every available senator to bully, coerce or offer campaign cash in exchange for a vote for Baucus’ attempt to protect the EPA.
We need to keep up the pressure! Please call, and go here or to https://secure.americantradition.org to chip in $100, $50, $35 or just $10.
