Sierra Club ad blasts Blanche Lincoln for 'Big Oil Bailout'
http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0310/Sierra_Club...

Script of radio ad:

First it was the big Wall Street banks. Then the Detroit car companies. Now some in the United States Senate want to bailout Big Oil.

That's right an industry that made billions last year. And even as the Arkansas economy is hurting and gas prices are rising, our own Senator Blanche Lincoln is backing this Big Oil bailout.

Senator Lincoln is co-sponsoring legislation that will protect Big Oil's profits by stalling new fuel economy rules that will cut America's oil use by nearly 2 billion barrels and save consumers nearly $500 a year at the gas pump.

And if this wasn't bad enough, a major newspaper reports that the plan that Lincoln supports was crafted by lobbyists for Big Oil and other special interests.

The Senate has been unable to do anything on energy independence and now Senator Lincoln wants to do even less.

Call Senator Lincoln at 501.375.2993 and ask her to oppose the Big Oil bailout and start making America more energy independent.
