Democrats Voting Against Clean Air: We're Watching

Hi, All,

Yesterday, in the U.S. Senate, four amendments attacking the Clean Air Act each failed to get the required 60 votes to pass. But before these votes could fail, 17 Democrats sided with big polluters and radical Republicans, and cast at least one vote to undermine the Clean Air Act's ability to limit carbon pollution.

I just signed a petition, telling these "Dirty Air Democrats" that I won't forget this vote. Will you click the link below and do likewise?


FYI, here are the names of the Democrat Senators who voted to block, delay or limit the Clean Air Act: Sens. Baucus (D-MT), Begich (D-AK), Hagan (D-NC), Levin (D-MI), Brown (D-OH), Casey (D-PA), Conrad (D-ND), Johnson (D-SD), Klobuchar (D-MN), Pryor (D-AR), Stabenow (D-MI), Landrieu (D-LA), Manchin (D-WV), McCaskill (D-MO), Nelson (D-NE), Rockefeller (D-WV), Webb (D-VA)
