Did you know we're sending $1 billion in oil money overseas? Often times that money ends up in the hands of terrorists that plot against American citizens and troops.

Billion Dollars A Day
We send $1 billion a day in oil money overseas -- often to nations that don't like America very much. Some of that money ends up in the hands of terrorists and funds deadly attacks on American forces, like EFPs specially designed to piece our armor.
This is what our troops are up against, everyday.
We need to break that connection and we can do it with a comprehensive clean energy climate plan. It defunds our enemies and defends America.
Some in Congress say it is a "tough vote."
Not as tough as what our troops are up against.
Sign our petition and tell the Senate that we need action, not excuses.
Full Petition Text:
We are sending more than $1 billion dollars a day overseas for oil. Money that ends up in the hands of terrorists that pay for deadly weapons against American troops, like EFPs.
Our addiction to oil continues to put our country at risk every day.
That's why I'm writing to urge you to stand with our veterans at Vote Vets and support clean energy legislation that moves American off our dependence on big oil. The connection between oil and our enemies couldn't be clearer. We need to break that connection by breaking our addiction to oil.
It's time to lead on clean energy and climate legislation.
