Video | President Obama Supports Wind ENERGY Tax Credits| Mitt Romney Opposes Wind ENERGY Tax Credits

OUR JOBS COME FROM THE WIND.  

President Obama’s all-of-the-above energy strategy is making America more energy independent by reducing our dependence on foreign oil and investing in renewable oil. And that’s why the President supports extending the Wind Energy Tax Credit.

But Mitt Romney would raise taxes on wind producers and protect tax breaks for oil companies and for those that ship jobs overseas –  which would put American jobs at risk and jeopardize our energy strategy.

Romney’s opposition  to the Wind Energy Tax Credit has generated attention in the local and national press. A snapshot of coverage is provided below:

    Hubby and I can’t help seeing all those Wind turbines when we travel from the Twin Cities to Iowa.

    I’d say IOWA is definitely GONE WITH THE WIND for you, Mittens!
