Yesterday afternoon, a friend of mine forwarded me a press release from California congressman Kevin McCarthy.

The press release announced a new energy coalition calling itself the House Energy Action Team (HEAT). Essentially, this is a group of Republicans that believes it has the solutions to our energy woes.

Curious to know what those solutions are?

Well it won't take a rocket scientist to figure this one out, my friends.

Combined, the members of HEAT have received more than $4 million from Big Oil. Here's the breakdown. . .

  • Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) $142,350
  • Peter Roskam (R-IL) $153,265
  • Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) $170,143
  • Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) $343,045
  • Mike Conaway (R-TX) $678,818
  • Steve Scalise (R-LA) $139,135
  • Greg Walden (R-OR) $182,500
  • Rick Berg (R-ND) $114,311
  • Jeff Denham (R-CA) $24,400
  • Cory Gardner (R-CO) $171,324
  • Doc Hastings (R-WA) $161,804
  • Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA) $26,600
  • Lynn Jenkins (R-KS) $119,600
  • Devin Nunes (R-CA) $138,000
  • Alan Nunnelee (R-MS) $55,050
  • Pete Olson (R-TX) $246,750
  • Ben Quayle (R-AZ) $42,200
  • Martha Roby (R-AL) $14,500
  • Phil Roe (R-TN) $23,700
  • Steve Womack (R-AR) $15,719
  • Jeff Duncan (R-SC) $15,000
  • Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) $30,000
  • Bill Flores (R-TX) $212,528
  • Virginia Foxx (R-NC) $58,450
  • John Shimkus (R-IL) $275,761
  • Fred Upton (R-MI) $262,850
  • Bill Johnson (R-OH) $5,250
  • Mike Pompeo (R-KS) $250,156

GRAND TOTAL. . . $4,073,209

Oh, and here's a shocker for you. . .

Every person on that list, except for Shelley Moore Capito, voted against ending Big Oil's $4 Billion a year welfare check.

I guess ending government handouts only applies to those who don't line your pockets with filthy lucre!
