The whole scoop on the Greensboro NC Cap&Trade event

This event has apparently been put together by conservatives, and if all the pre-announcement gossip is true, then Kay Hagan is part of it.  I don’t see her in the event announcements, so maybe FreedomWorks was trying to get her to participate and she backed out? I’m just speculating here.

In any case, Kay Hagan is unconfirmed as of now, since FreedomWorks is not announcing her, but there will apparently be a large conservative energy rally sponsored by Dick Armey’s FreedomWorks.  They are even offering free hot dogs and hamburgers for all:

I need to know where Senator Kay Hagan fits into this before I decide on FreedomWorks for the time being.

Join us for food and great entertainment.
Multiple speakers will address this issue. Scheduled speakers: Nathan Tabor, Businessman; Valerie White, NCFRW President

Climate Change Legislation being considered in Washington will cause huge economic pain and produce little environmental gain Legislation approved by the House of Representatives will cost 2 million American jobs, raise gasoline and diesel prices up to $4 per gallon, make American businesses less able to compete globally, and reduce America’s energy security. The U.S. Senate will soon take up climate/energy/tax legislation. Let our U.S. Senators know they need to “get it right” and not make the same mistakes as the House. Energy Citizens are people from all walks of life-workers in industry, truckers, farmers, homemakers, small business owners-whose daily lives and ability to carry on business depend on affordable energy and a healthy economic environment that secures today’s jobs and provides employment opportunities for a growing population.

Help Oppose Cap and Trade – Attend the Energy Citizen’s Rally in Greensboro!

As I’m sure you’ve seen, President Obama’s healthcare reform campaign has been dominating the airwaves and town hall meetings around the country.  It cannot be underestimated how important it is to stop this big government scheme.

But it is equally important that we don’t let up pressure against another threat: Cap and Trade.  More accurately called “Cap and Tax” – this legislation has already passed the House and will be in the hands of the Senate when they come back from the August Recess in September.  Please help spread the word about the Cap and Tax plot by attending the Energy Citizens’ Rally in Greensboro, on August 20 at the Greensboro Coliseum.  Doors open at 11:30 am and there will be hamburgers and hot dogs for all.

This will be a great opportunity to learn more about how proposed cap and trade legislation, like the Waxman-Markey bill which recently passed the U.S. House of Representatives, could impact your wallet and what you can do about it.  We know that if something like Waxman-Markey passes out of the Senate, and the President signs it into law it means lost jobs and a massive new energy tax for American consumers – just when our economy can afford it least!

You can learn more about the Cap and Tax scheme as part of FreedomWorks’ August Recess Call to Action.  Be sure to download the action kit and check out the map for town halls and citizen action rallies (in green) near you.  Click “Page 2”  to see more – there are too many to fit on one page.

Finally, if you haven’t already, please be sure to TAKE ACTION and tell your legislators to oppose cap and trade schemes like Waxman-Markey.  Thank you for your ongoing vigilance on this important issue.
