AEA Releases Radio Ads Highlighting NAT GAS Act as Another
Wasteful Washington Program

WASHINGTON – Today, the American Energy Alliance released a radio advertisement campaign entitled, “Our Money”.  The ads will run in markets in Idaho, Wyoming, Maine, Alabama, and Mississippi.  They specifically reference the NAT GAS Act (H.R. 1301) as an example of another in a long line of unwise, unwarranted, and unaffordable federal policies.

AEA President Thomas Pyle noted that: “The ads are designed to remind voters that narrowly targeted energy subsidies, especially those favored by billionaires who stand to profit from the subsidies in question, are counterproductive and result in higher energy costs, reduced economic growth, and restricted job growth.

“In short, policies where a handful of Washington, DC officials and bureaucrats decide who wins and who loses are very poor substitutes for the marketplace, where millions of customers are more capable of deciding for themselves without wasting our hard-earned taxpayer dollars in the process.”

AEA Ad – Our Money

ANNOUNCER: After wasting trillions of taxpayer dollars on failed bailouts and government giveaways, you’d think Washington would kick its outrageous spending habit.

But even in the middle of a $14 trillion national debt crisis, Congress just can’t stop giving away our money.

The latest congressional giveaway is the NAT GAS Act—billions in corporate welfare that would dole out $60 thousand dollars in tax subsidies for each new natural gas truck purchase.

Meanwhile, ‘We the People’ get stuck with the bill through higher energy costs and less job opportunities.

American families are suffering through high unemployment and soaring energy costs. We can’t afford another corporate welfare giveaway like the NAT GAS Act.

Now is the time for action.

Call your U.S. Senator or Congressman at 202-225-3121. Tell them special interest handouts like the Nat Gas Act have to stop.
