BERA CAMPAIGN UNVEILS NEW VIDEO EXPOSING LUNGREN'S SUPPORT FOR BIG OIL
Lungren supports tax breaks for oil companies while taking $75,000 from Big Oil
ELK GROVE, CA – Today Bera for Congress unveiled a new online video, "Big Oil, Big Money" exposing Dan Lungren's continued support for offshore drilling and Big Oil, even after the catastrophic BP oil spill.
Anchor: Republican Dan Lungren says we have to start drilling for oil off the coast of California.
Lungren: Take the restraints off of offshore oil drilling. Allow more leases. We can do it safely.
Announcer: 11 workers are still missing and feared dead...the gusher in the Gulf continues to pour ou t.
Lungren: We can do it without environmental degradation.
Announcer: The spill now covering 400 miles of shoreline...once it's in these fragile wetlands, the oil is almost impossible to clean up.
Lungren: Look, drill here, in America. Not only in California but off Florida. In the Gulf. Off Atlantic.
Announcer: How much more will Lungren do for Big Oil? Lungren has voted for $2.6 billion in tax breaks for oil and gas companies, to expand offshore drilling, and even as Big Oil's profits continue to soar, Lungren voted to give them government handouts. It's easy to see where Lungren's loyalties lie.
Lungren: Drill here, in the United States, American resources. Drill now, not 20 years from now, not 30 years from now, now! Drill here! Drill here! Drill here!
Announcer: And Lungren's greed seems to have no end.
Lungren: If I could get more I'd take more.
Announcer: Dan Lungren: Hasn't he taken enough?
