WASHINGTON, DC - Senator John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) issued today the following statement regarding the Senate's vote not to invoke cloture on the Energy Bill:
"This energy bill was written by and for President Bush's friends and campaign contributors in the big oil and nuclear industries. It is a great deal for the special interests, but it is a raw deal for America's families.
"Now that we've stopped this gift to President Bush's special interest contributors, I hope we get serious about a real energy plan that eliminates our dependence on Middle East oil and creates jobs by investing in renewable energy sources like ethanol, wind, and solar."
