Down With Upton!

 This is the guy who outlawed the incandescent bulb and removed millions of acres of federal lands from oil and gas leasing.

FreedomWorks is working to stop this through educating and compiling signatures on a petition to urge members of the House Republican Steering Committee to OPPOSE Fred Upton as chair of the Committee on Energy and Commerce.

As Congress reconvenes and the House GOP eyes its new majority, they first take on some important internal elections to name powerful Committee Chairs. One race is a particular threat. Fred Upton is considered a front-runner to become chair of the Energy and Commerce Committee, where he would dictate the GOP’s legislative policy regarding energy issues such as cap-and-trade, oil drilling, and so-called “green” initiatives.
