DCCC Chairman Steve Israel’s Statement on Earth Day

DCCC Chairman Steve Israel issued the following statement on Earth Day.

“This Earth Day serves not only as an opportunity for us to renew our commitment to protecting our country’s precious natural resources, but also as a sad reminder of House Republicans’ misplaced priorities that put Big Oil companies ahead of a clean technology economy that would strengthen the middle class.

“House Republicans have gone to the mat time and again to protect huge taxpayer subsidies for Big Oil at the expense of investing in clean technology that could drive hundreds of billions of dollars in economic activity. The message they have sent with their latest budget is crystal clear: House Republicans are hurting the economy by continuing to side with Big Oil, and against middle class families seeking a strong economy and safe environment in which to raise their kids.”
