Take action over the next four days–email, call and tweet President Obama asking him to be our families’ champion and deny the pipeline permit.
The Senate passed the middle-class tax bill and the House will likely vote on the bill Monday which means the President will sign the bill by Tuesday.
Big Oil Senators and House Members demanded a rushed decision on the pipeline be included in order to get their votes on a bill that was intended to ensure families don’t get hit with a $1,000 tax burden.
Some politicians are calling Nebraskans “crazy” and claiming we are “utterly irrational” for the valid concerns we have about our water supply, health and heritage of family farms and ranches. These are the same Big Oil Senators and House Members who take millions of dirty energy dollars each year while our families fight to keep our state strong.
The good news is some Senators, White House officials and the State Department are signaling that the rushed timeframe means one thing and one thing only–denying the pipeline permit.
We need to communicate with the White House and let them know we stand with the President, just like we all stand with landowners like Randy. President Obama can be our families’ champion. He can stand up to Big Oil’s money.
Ask President Obama to come to Nebraska to work a day in our boots and deny the pipeline permit so our country can move forward with creating sustainable energy jobs that won’t risk our families’ health, water or land.
