    Keeping Alternative Transportation on the Radar

    In case you've been missing it, Democrat-sponsored Clean Energy legislation is up for a vote soon. Late Thursday night, word came down that Congressional leaders are considering dropping the mandates for clean energy alternatives.

    It's a matter of days before the votes are cast, so time is running out to let your Senators and Representatives know where you stand on Clean Energy, and the measures you think Americans must take to make it a reality.

    Among the measures being considered in this bill are funds to support Americans who wish to use alternative transportation. Apparently, not everyone in Congress is ready to believe the lengths Americans are ready to go to in their attempts to achieve energy independence. Have a look at this short video clip of Rep. McHenry's (R, NC) reaction to a portion of the current energy bill:

    What do you think?  Feel free to leave a comment, but more importantly, make sure to share your two cents with your representative(s).
