Was 15% Too High?

As you may remember, Thad's rating from the League of Conservation Voters was an abysmal 15%. But Thad has shown no signs of cleaning up his act. In fact, just last week he voted against the Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation Tax Act of 2008, a bill that passed despite Thad's dissent. The bill repeals tax breaks for oil companies in order to pay for further investments in alternative energy, as well as tax breaks for individuals who take the initiative and invest themselves.

This vote matches up perfectly with his horrendous voting record on environmental issues. But there is a deeper level to this vote. Thad is voting to keep tax cuts in the pockets of the rich oil companies while simultaneously voting against cuts for the rest of us.

One more reason to be mad at Thad.
