Dear Steven,

Gas prices are climbing - with a 20 percent jump in the past month 
alone. Unbelievably, the Left is pushing a bill that would drive energy 
prices higher.

They call it cap and trade, but it's just a new energy tax. They think 
tackling climate change requires regulating the energy use of every 
individual and business in America, and that if energy costs more, 
you'll use less. But that's not a solution, it's a recipe for another 
summer of $4 a gallon gas.

*So we've started the "5 for 5: Stop the Energy Tax Challenge" *to get 
the facts out.

*Please read the 5 facts, **sign the petition* 
<http://www.americansolutions.com/take-action/petition/index3.php>*, and 
forward this to 5 friends, urging them to do the same.*

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.*

*Roll Call is reporting that Nancy Pelosi wants this passed by the 
Fourth of July recess. So, we must move fast.*

*Please **sign the Stop the Energy Tax petition* 
<http://www.americansolutions.com/take-action/petition/index3.php>*, and 
then forward this email to 5 people, urging them to do the same. *We 
also have a "Tell-a-Friend" tool at the bottom of the petition page 
<http://www.americansolutions.com/take-action/petition/index3.php> that 
you can use.

*Together, we'll make the politicians listen - and act.*

Your friend,

Newt Gingrich

*P.S. *As part of this campaign, we're going to start buying internet 
ads in key Congressional districts to keep up the pressure*. *Please 
consider making a secure contribution of $15 today to make this happen 

*P.P.S. *This month, many young people will be graduating to the next 
stage in their lives. When I used to speak to graduating classes, I'd 
outline 5 principles for a successful life. My daughter Jackie and I 
have now written a book about it, called 5 Principles for a Successful 
Life. At American Solutions, we just interviewed Jackie about the book.
