Today, Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist sent the below letter to the Senate urging Republicans to oppose the motion to end debate on the so-called Shaheen-Portman energy efficiency bill. Once again, Harry Reid has disallowed Republican amendments by "filling the tree." this is unacceptable.

From the letter:

Democrat political maneuvering has obfuscated the Party’s anti-energy policies in an attempt to fool voters come November. Senate Republicans must fight back against the subversive tactics employed by Majority Leader Reid.

Sen. Reid killed the Shaheen-Portman bill, not Senate Republicans.

America is at an energy crossroads. The shale revolution has unlocked previously unthinkable amounts of oil and natural gas. The EPA is writing unprecedented new regulations for power plants, gasoline content, and state emission content. The White House scuttled the Keystone Pipeline. Oil and natural gas production is down on federal lands. Federal laws prohibit the export of crude oil and inhibit liquefied natural gas exports.
