Warner Robins, GA (PRWEB) May 30, 2006
It has become a tradition for Democratic Congressman Jim Marshall to vote against the interests of Georgia’s families, farmers, and small businesses who are desperately reworking their budgets to purchase gasoline and fuel; while, he supports the interests of the oil rich Sheiks of the Middle East. Yesterday, Marshall voted against H.R. 5429 – The American-Made Energy and Good Jobs Act which passed the House by a vote of 225-201. The act will open a portion of the ANWR in Alaska up to much needed and environmentally safe oil drilling that will help decrease America’s dependency on foreign oil.
“Jim Marshall once again chose to cast the vote of Georgians in the 8th Congressional District against a bill which will help make the United States less dependant on foreign oil. Georgians in the 8th district are looking for solutions to high gasoline prices from their representative in Washington. They do not want to see their Representative vote to enhance the coffers of already wealthy oil Sheiks in the Middle East whom the United States has depended on for far too long for gasoline for their cars,” said Ted Prill, campaign manager for Congressman Mac Collins.
Former Congressman Mac Collins is a candidate for Georgia’s NEW 8th Congressional District. He is a proven conservative leader, having served 12 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, and in the Republican leadership of the House as a member of the Republican Steering Committee, and as Deputy Majority Whip.
