After reviewing this, I can predict some of the ads we're going to see in November 2008 with the unsaid portions in parenthesis.
Senator So-N-So voted to let Big Oil rape Alaska (by allowing the other part of helping low-income families with their heating bills pass).
Representative Other-Guy voted to let families freeze to death by voting against the measure (to open the Alaskan fields for US Oil companies).
In essence, they passed a measure that included, along with the ANWR provision, $29 billion in federal aid for victims of Katrina and other storms; an additional $2 billion to help low-income families with home heating costs; and $3.8 billion to prepare for a possible bird flu pandemic. Of the defense money, $50 billion is for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. The bill contains a 3.1 percent pay raise for military personnel, an increase in the death gratuity for the families of active duty personnel to $100,000 and an increase in the enlistment bonuses for active duty to $40,000. Anyone who voted against oil in Alaska voted against all the above benefits, thus ensuring a catch 22 in the next election.
