Gas prices are hitting all-time highs. Our country is in the midst of a
recession thanks in part to our crippling dependence on oil, so what’s
John McCain’s plan? Will he hold the corporate leaders of the energy industry accountable when he addresses them today in Houston? Probably not, considering they are some of his biggest fund-raisers.
The Center for Responsive Politics finds that McCain has accepted over
$1 million from the oil and gas industry. Many of McCain’s top advisers
have lobbied for big oil, which is why he now acts in their best
interests, opposing environmental legislation and alternative energy
plans. And that’s exactly why we want everyone to know The REAL McCain.
McCain is desperate to distance himself from President Bush. But
according to the Center for American Progress Action Fund, McCain has
received millions in donations from the same oil, coal, nuclear,
chemical, utility, and auto companies that helped the Bush
administration create its energy plana plan that has raised gasoline to
$4 a gallon.
Here’s what you can do: Send this e-mail to ten of your friends, family
members, and colleagues. Tell them to send it on to ten people they
know. And don’t forget to Digg it! Spread the word that McCain is taking
major contributions from wealthy oil executives like Bob Mosbacher, just
one of the special interest leaders he’ll be addressing in Houston.
