AFP - UPDATED -- Our response to Pres. Obama

afp-LH_small

The President really wants you to believe that his environmental agenda will help the country's, and the world's, most vulnerable. But that couldn't be further from the truth.

Today President Obama delivered a speech at the United Nations in New York City to promote his ideologically-driven, destructive energy agenda to combat what used to be called global warming, then climate change, then extreme weather, and now finally climate disruption. The President insists that an international climate agreement is in the best interests of the American people. He claims that the United States must act on climate change now to protect future generations and the future of our country from changes in the weather.

What President Obama DIDN'T you during his speech is the truth about his radical international energy agenda -- that it will severely damage the US economy, and that America's poorest and most vulnerable will end up paying the price. More needless regulations on the energy industry mean costlier electric bills and a higher overall cost of living for everyone.

If President Obama is truly committed to helping those in need, he should seriously rethink his energy agenda. 
Affordable energy is essential to human well-being and prosperity  not just in the United States, but around the world. But if President Obama has his way, the cost of electricity will only continue to rise.

With every policy decision, it becomes more and more clear that President Obama is only concerned with his own legacy -- not about the quality of life of the American people and future generations.

The worst part is, President Obama knows that his energy agenda is harmful and will not help our country get back on the path to prosperity. In fact the President's proposal is so unpopular and destructive, even Harry Reid's Senate wouldn't dream of passing it, which is why he has bypassed Congress and taken his short-sighted, destructive energy policies to an international body.

Robert, please send a message to your Senators today , telling them to hold President Obama accountable, and to stand firm against any more harmful energy policies.
