Dear Linda,

Since you signed the "Stop the Energy Tax" petition, almost 50,000 other people have joined you in this effort.

Now it's crunch time. Roll Call is reporting that Nancy Pelosi wants this passed by the Fourth of July recess, so that doesn't leave us much time to get the facts out.

To get moving, we've started the "5 for 5: Stop the Energy Tax Challenge." Please read the 5 facts below, and forward them to 5 friends. Then, tell them to sign the Stop the Energy Tax petition, and recruit 5 of their friends.

Think about it - how would these added expenses affect you, and your family? This new energy tax would:
1. Raise inflation-adjusted gasoline prices by 74 percent
2. Raise electricity rates 90 percent after adjusting for inflation
3. Raise the cost of living of a typical household by $1,600 a year
4, Raise residential natural gas prices by 55 percent
5. Destroy 1-3 million jobs per year, every year until 2035

This new energy tax is neither an energy nor an environmental solution. It's a tax. And nobody thinks they're under-taxed.

Please act now and forward these 5 facts to 5 people who would be affected by higher energy taxes. We also have a "Tell-a-Friend" tool at the bottom of the petition page that you can use.
Together, we'll make the politicians listen - and act.

Your friend,

Newt Gingrich
General Chairman
American Solutions for Winning the Future
