New Ad: Meet The Face Of The Republican Party - Sarah Palin
As Palin Steps Down, Ad Asks Congress: Do You Stand With Palin Or With New Clean Energy Jobs?
A new 30-second television ad, released today, reintroduces Americans to the new face of the Republican Party’s opposition to clean energy jobs – formerGovernor Sarah Palin. The ad, “New Face”, comes on the heels of Palin’s last day as Governor of Alaska and two weeks after Sarah Palin’s recent attack on the energy bill, which ran in The Washington Post on July 14th. As the energy bill moves to the Senate, MoveOn.org Political Action’s ad asks Congress if they stand with Sarah Palin or for new clean energy jobs.
The ad will run on national cable for one week.
“Sarah Palin has a lot more free time on her hands now, and it appears she’s decided to lead the Republican Party in attacking a strong clean energy jobs plan that could jump start our economy and create millions of jobs,” said Justin Ruben, Executive Director of MoveOn.org. “Congress needs to think long and hard about whose side they’re on: Sarah Palin’s or the millions of Americans who would benefit from the creation of green jobs.”
This ad is part of MoveOn’s larger campaign to ensure a strong energy bill that fosters green job growth and does not repeal a key provision of the Clean Air Act. The campaign has included both national and local advertising, field actions and lobbying activities.
MoveOn.org Political Action is a political action committee powered by five million progressive Americans. We believe in the power of small donors and grassroots action to elect progressive leaders to office and to advance a progressive agenda. We do not accept any donations over $5,000, and the average donation to MoveOn.org Political Action is under $100.
Moveon.org and their ilk stand to make money if Cap and Tax were to pass. The average person though has lots to lose, up to hundreds of dollars every month in increased home energy costs, increased gas prices, and overall higher costs of groceries and other goods as the companies that pay more for energy will pass their costs onto the consumer.
All of us who follow Palin know that she is pro clean energy and pro job creation especially by the private sector. She has championed the AGIA gas pipeline which will supply much needed energy and jobs to Americans while making sure it was the private sector that put up the money for it.
So who do you side with?
Contact your congressman and senator today and say NO to Cap and Trade.
