Waxman-Markey: Higher Energy Costs, Fewer Jobs

The National Association of Manufacturers and the National Federation of Independent Business have started an advertising campaign in 13 states stressing the impact on families and jobs of the Waxman-Markey bill.

Here’s our news release. The first video follows.

Jay Timmons, NAM’s executive vice president, says:

Our message to senators is that the Waxman-Markey bill is an “anti-jobs, anti-energy” piece of legislation. 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. Our country needs a growth strategy as we struggle to come out of the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. What we do not need are policies and regulations that will cost millions of jobs and harm our overall economy.

The NAM’s YouTube page has the two other TV spots.
