FEBRUARY 6TH, 2008 | Harkin for Senate
Another State of the Union address has passed with another empty promise from President Bush to move our country toward energy independence.
Year after year, he has supported expanding the use of renewable sources of energy in word, but never in action.
As you know, my Farm Bill makes important investments in developing alternative energy resources and there is only one person standing in its way.
Will you take action with me and make a contribution to my campaign today?
It’s time for the president to make good on his State of the Union promises and work with Congress to pass meaningful legislation that addresses our dependence on foreign sources of oil.
Please make a contribution today to ensure that I can continue to lead this fight.
Investing in alternative energy creates good jobs. Passing the farm bill will help provide crucial opportunities for family farmers, free fresh fruits and vegetables for kids in schools, important new conservation initiatives and key investments in rural communities.
When the president threatens to veto this bill, our country suffers in an immediate way. At the end of the day, the president can say, in word, he supports anything. The reality is we have a solution now – it just needs a presidential signature.
Actions mean more than words. Stand with me to hold the president to his promises.
Investing in alternative energy will have a tremendous impact on the world our children and grandchildren will inherit. It is our responsibility to act now.
The final State of the Union is one more indication that brighter days are just ahead.
Thank you for all of your help and support.
