Liberty and Freedom
Just so you remember, Fred Upton signed the "In or Out 2010" Pledge. I am attaching it below. Let's hold him to that pledge.
He also signed on to the "Pledge to America" put out by the Rep. Party. Let's hold him to that pledge. I gave my signed booklet to Diane Konneck as she is working on the Issues Committee. Many things promised are issues we as a movement want changed. Several of them skirt the problems because without Senate and a decent President, the House cannot get them through. Still, we must hold their feet to fire!
Here is a good synopsis by Connie Hair of Human Events of Fred's past voting record on energy-related legislation.
She identifies him as Fred Upton (RINO-Mich). I find it interesting that the infamous "light-bulb banning" bill also included new energy standards for household appliances -- isn't his family still involved in Maytag/Whirlpool (and didn't they send their manufacturing overseas)??
A more detailed voting record.
Finally, Fred Upton gets it on the absolute necessity for us to become energy independent by 2020. Here's a recent email exchange:
I am so excited to work on the many challenges before us and for the GOP team that we have assembled on the Energy and Commerce cmte--Whether it be health, energy, communications or fraud and abuse, we will be on it like a dog to a frisbee--have a great Christmas--
