Senate failure is victory for Eastern Oregonians  

Credit:  www.statesmanjournal.com 16 March 2012 ~~

A huge victory was achieved by citizens working at the grass roots level when the Production Tax Credit Amendment failed in the US Senate March 13.

Wind energy projects have been dependent on these tax credits to be financially feasible. Failure of this amendment means that our nation will not incur a $5-$20 billion dollar debt (plus interest) to the Chinese.

The work of thousands of citizens – both Democrat and Republican, educating themselves and others about the truth of the wind power scam made the difference.

Sadly, Oregonians cannot credit their senators for taking appropriate action. Both Senators Merkley and Wyden voted to approve the amendment putting the interests of big wind energy corporations ahead of taxpayers.

— Linda Bond, Union, member, Friends of the Grande Ronde Valley
