Congressman McCaul will be voting AGAINST H.R. 2454, the Cap and Trade bill.
A press release will be issued after the vote.
Representative Michael T. McCaul (R-TX)
Congressman McCaul does not support the carbon tax, and his office has stated that he will vote against it.
An automated message from Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty directed people to call his office and lobby for him to vote against the legislation.
Based on this message, his intent was falsely interpreted and reported incorrectly. Please redirect your efforts to lobby other members of Congress not to support the bill and vote against “Cap-and-Trade”– a bill which will cripple the United States economy with undue taxes and which no one has even rightfully read.

Dear Friend of Liberty,
Legislative sources on the Hill have informed me that a vote on “Cap-and-Trade” (Cap-and-Tax) is likely to come around 5 pm eastern today.
Once again, most legislators have no idea what is in the 1,201 page bill about to be put up for final vote.
Passing Cap-and-Trade is a very high priority for the Obama administration, but a procedural vote earlier this morning only produced a 217-205 favorable result. This very tight margin proves your calls and emails are having an impact.
Now is the time to turn up the pressure. Call your representative, Harry Teague, at (202) 225-2365 immediately and urge him to vote against this latest tax scheme. (American families could end up paying several thousand dollars a year in higher energy bills as a result of HR 2454.)
Make sure Representative Harry Teague at (202) 225-2365 hears from you! For email and fax information, visit our HR 2454 action page here.
John F. Tate
President, Campaign for Liberty
