I can’t believe it. Did you hear? Yesterday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) decided to pull the plug on passing any energy legislation before Congress went on vacation.1
What the hell does it take?!?
We’ve had a five-month oil spill that has dumped over 200 million gallons of crude into the Gulf of Mexico and tar balls washing up on beaches in Florida, and still BP plans to claim billions in tax breaks. Meanwhile, Congress can’t seem to hike its pants up, tie its shoes and find a real solution. Harry Reid and the Senate gave up.
But we haven’t.
Wednesday, we announced a new campaign to end tax giveaways to oil companies. We’re ready to take the fight all the way to the doors of Congress if need be. Donations are rolling in and we’re on our way to meeting our goal.

We can’t afford to give up. The stakes are too high. We need an energy policy that isn’t built on billions of dollars in tax giveaways to the richest companies in the world. We believe this campaign can make an impact on where we’re headed on clean energy. But only with your help.
