United States Congress,
On August 1st, 2008, We The People were hoping to see our Congress take action to relieve the burden of high energy costs for American consumers. As you know, sky rocketing fuel prices are causing stress on virtually every aspect of our lives. It is the duty of our elected representatives to find solutions.
However, the events of August 1st, led by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her Democrat Colleagues, have shown that many of our representatives are putting self interests before the welfare of the American people. Indeed, the Democrat majority in Congress shut down Capital Hill before holding a vote on the energy bill. In fact, the majority leadership appeared to take extreme measures to stifle any and all discussion related to energy on the House floor, including shutting off lights, cameras, and microphones to ensure that our Representativesâ€™ voices would not be heard by the public.
We find this to be an outrage, and an insult to the American democratic process. We strongly urge you to remain in session until votes have been cast on energy legislation. As our elected representatives, it is your duty to serve the citizens of this great country, and we expect you to do your jobs with the dedication and perseverance most American workers demonstrate each day with their own jobs and families. We call on you to immediately convene a session and provide a respectful bipartisan forum to make progress on one of the most important problems facing our country- a lack of energy independence.
Finding a solution to our energy crises is a priority for us. There for, we demand it be a priority for you as well.
