Michele Bachmann has been traveling the district claiming that she supports an "All of the Above" strategy for achieving energy independence. Unfortunately, when Bachmann says all of the above what she really means is she demogoguing drilling for oil and the rest of that global warming voodoo technology deserves no attention. Let's be clear, when it comes to energy independence and voting on alternative energies, the record of the Congresswoman from the 6th District is atrocious.

One of the first orders of business for the 110th Congress was H.R. 6:

An Act to move the United States toward greater energy independence and security, to increase the production of clean renewable fuels, to protect consumers, to increase the efficiency of products, buildings, and vehicles, to promote research on and deploy greenhouse gas capture and storage options, and to improve the energy performance of the Federal Government, and for other purposes.

Michele Bachmann had the opportunity early in her term to work for all of the above, but rather than doing that she voted against it. Not only did she vote against this legislation one time, she voted against this legislation to invest in renewable fuels (a hallmark of 'All of the Above') a total of three separate times. This will be the first in a series of posts examining the voting record of what it means to be for "All of the Above".

    That early non-energy energy bill was filled with a ton of tax increases.

    As Rep. Bachmann stated Saturday, this do-nothing congress still hasn't passed legislation extending the tax credits for renewable energies.

    It's funny how people say Politician X voted against Motherhood & apple pie while failing to mention the billions of $$$ in tax increases.

    I'm sure that's just an oversight, right Eric? You wouldn't omit something that important, would you?
