John McCain has a 88% rating from Council for Citizens Against Government Waste, while Barack Obama limps to a paltry 18%. Nancy Pelosi beats Obama with an embarassing 14%. Clinton & Biden got zero ratings! It’s a wonder these folks keep getting re-elected. Take a look at the voting records. This is what McCain must hammer home! The US must stop spending or we will be bankrupt!
There were three Taxpayer Super Heroes with a score of 100 percent: Reps. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), and F. James Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.).
I live near Jeb Hensarling’s district, Jeb isalso behind American Energy Freedom Day. Living in Texas you live with oil. Even around the Dallas Fort Worth area we have drilling activity going on. I remember the oil bust of the eighties. When the world oil glut of the mid-1980’s sank the price of Texas crude to the point that it was hardly worth digging for more, the state’s economy collapsed with it. Now we have the opposite problem. Now we have an economy on the verge of collapse.Today the price per barrel of oil shoots up $16. We need people like Jeb Hensarling to help McCain/Palin. We need more people like Jeb that know the economy is dependent on producing our own resources. The sooner we rid ourselves of the obstructionist democrats the better. Please RNC run ads in those states wherewe have a chance to gain more seats in Congress. Please John McCain, put energy upfront as one of the things that we can do to help our economy. The debate on Friday is about Foreign Policy. Oil is a big component in a foreign policy debate.
“They can drill in my backyard if they want too!”
