Business Groups Push Back Against Cap and Tax

The National Association of Manufactures (NAM) and the National Federation of Independent Business have gone up on the air with a multimillion dollar ad buy against the Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade climate change bill. The initial phase of the campaign will be concentrated in Alaska, Arkansas, Indiana, Missouri, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Dakota, Ohio, Virginia, and West Virginia — the states that would hardest hit and fit the politicla profile of the districts represented by the 44 Democrats who voted against Waxman-Markey in the House.

“Our message to senators is that the Waxman-Markey bill is an ‘anti-jobs, anti-energy’ piece of legislation,” said NAM Executive Vice President Jay Timmons in a statement. “It will shrink our nation’s economy, make us less competitive with foreign countries, raise energy costs for consumers and businesses, take away disposable income for Americans and cause significant job loss.” This campaign is larger than the comparable one launched by and other liberal groups to advertise against Republicans who voted no on Waxman-Markey in the House.
