April 7, 2018

Paul Ryan supported Donald Trump’s EPA chair Scott Pruitt while he gutted environmental protections and blocked essential work to combat climate change.

And now that Scott Pruitt is facing numerous charges of corruption -- including using taxpayer money for lavious travel, and $43,000 to soundproof his office -- Paul Ryan is remaining silent, terrified of upsetting his oil and gas company campaign contributors.

We need elected officials willing to stand up to Trump’s corrupt EPA and the fossil fuel industry. That means we need to get rid of Paul Ryan.

As a Congressman, DFA-endorsed progressive Randy Bryce would lobby to end corporate welfare for this billion dollar industry and work to create thousands of Green Jobs. Will you stand with Randy and DFA and call for an end to fossil fuel subsidies?

Each year, Congress hands billions of dollars in subsidies to oil and gas CEOs. These taxpayer handouts to one of the richest industries on earth are part of a “dirty energy money cycle” that must end. In return for their subsidies, the fossil fuel industry spends hundreds of millions per year in campaign contributions and lobbying expenses -- which Paul Ryan gladly accepts.

Over his career, Paul Ryan has received nearly $2 million in contributions from the fossil fuel industry. In exchange, he looks the other way as oil and gas companies contribute to the dangerous polluting of our country.

Randy Bryce has pledged not to accept any contributions from fossil fuel companies -- which is one of the many reasons he has earned DFA’s endorsement. Please stand with DFA and Randy Bryce by signing our petition to end fossil fuel subsidies today.

Thank you,

Sign Randy Bryce's petition: End fossil fuel subsidies

SIGN THE PETITION

Over his career, Paul Ryan 😈 has received nearly $2 million in contributions from the fossil fuel industry. Randy Bryce has pledged not to accept any contributions from fossil fuel companies and, as a Congressman, he would lobby to end corporate welfare 🦖 for this billion dollar industry.

It makes little sense to prop up oil companies and create a competitive disadvantage for clean energy companies. In Wisconsin alone, we’ve seen WE Energies do everything in its power to disincentivize community efforts to transition to clean and renewable energy sources. This utility company, like many fossil fuel companies, has not been a good actor in Wisconsin and we must not let them continue to stand in the way of progress.

Sign the petition and stand with Randy Bryce's pledge to not accept fossil fuel money and end fossil fuel subsidies.
