Tell John Boehner: Renew the Production Tax Credit Now!

    1. Sponsored by

Right now, a bill to protect tens of thousands of American jobs in the growing wind industry isn't going anywhere, because Speaker of the House John Boehner -- who sets the calendar for the House of Representatives -- doesn't want to schedule it for an up-or-down vote.

The wind industry employs 75,000 Americans in manufacturing, installation, and maintenance. These are good-paying jobs for skilled workers, and they're helping the country move beyond the wasteful and outdated energy technologies of the 19th century.

And they're disappearing while Boehner delays action. What's he waiting for?

Under fierce pressure from the obstructionist Tea Party to let the wind industry wither and die, Boehner and the House leaders are playing a game of chicken with the economy and with thousands of Americans' livelihoods. Congress will keep heading toward disaster until we've put as much pressure on Boehner as the Tea Party has.

      My career depends on the renewal of this Production Tax Credit. In the current state of the economy, please take into consideration the loss of tens of thousands of jobs and lost opportunities for graduate students such as myself -- please don't let wind power die!

      We need clean, renewable energy, not dirty energy from fossil fuels. Future generations won't forgive us if we don't act responsibly today.
