Libertarians urge “no” vote on $1.9 trillion Waxman-Markey tax hike
Pelosi hopes to rush tax hike to a vote this week
WASHINGTON – America’s third largest party urged the U.S. House Tuesday to defeat plans for a $1.9 trillion energy tax hike over eight years. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is attempting to rush H.R. 2454, the Waxman-Markey energy tax bill, to a vote this week.
While Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee Bob Barr continues to dominate the media as the leading alternative to Senators Barack Obama and John McCain, other Libertarian candidates across the nation have been getting the nod from local and state media outlets. The following are endorsements and positive mentions of Libertarians running for public office.
Mark Miller, the Libertarian candidate for the Railroad Commission in Texas, was endorsed by the Star-Telegram on October 20. Mr. Miller has been endorsed by the major daily newspapers in the state.
"Texans should buck two-party tradition and elect Libertarian Mark Miller, a former University of Texas at Austin petroleum engineering professor with deep oil and gas knowledge — but from a respectful distance.
"For transparency, Miller wants to change the agency’s name to the Energy Resources Commission. He’d help separate it from the industry it regulates."
In a new podcast, Reason's Nick Gillespie talks with Libertarian National Committee Chair Nicholas Sarwark about what the 'party of principle' is up to in the final weeks of the 2016 race and the LP's bold new strategy of running electable, pragmatic candidates who are also committed to maximum freedom and minimal government.
The Libertarian Party is America's third largest political party, founded in 1971. Our vision is for a world in which all individuals can freely exercise the natural right of sole dominion over their own lives, liberty and property by building a political party that elects Libertarians to public office, and moving public policy in a libertarian direction.
