The 2002 CAFE Standards Amendment


Find your Senator and look to see if he/she voted YES, if he/she did vote them out of office in the next election. Any representative of the people who would vote against raising the CAFE fuel mileage standards does not deserve to be in an elected office. It would have raised them to 34 mpg by 2013, that's 11 years folks. Money is the corruption of politics, until we get the money and the corporations and the lobbyists and the special interest out of politics the people will not be represented fairly. This amendment was killed by the gas and oil and auto company lobbyists.

A yes vote was against raising CAFE standards and a no vote was for raising CAFE standards. In other words the senators who voted no are the people we want to keep in office. The senators who voted yes should be voted out of office. The amendment was to kill raising the CAFE standards to 34 mpg by 2013.

The vote was 62 to 38.
