Congressman Smith vows to protect the worst polluters and climate change deniers

As Monmouth County residents continue to struggle to rebuild the devastating impact of Sandy, Congressman chooses to protect the biggest polluters and climate change deniers.


http://littlegreenfootballs.com/page/298854_Koch_Pledge_Tied_to_Congressio   Although Chris Smith has not signed the Koch Pledge, which was created by the Koch Brothers, he has promised not to sign any climate change legislation unless it is held hostage with tax cuts for the biggest polluters which include - the drafters of the Pledge - the Koch Brothers.  Ask his staff 202-225-3765. Koch Industries on polluter watch   http://www.polluterwatch.com/koch-industries   Chris Smith postures himself with a lot of rhetoric about protecting the Jersey Shore and the people that live here but the rhetoric is just rhetoric. Behind closed doors he makes promises to his colleagues that serve himself and his party.  Chris Smith is not new to signing partisan pledges.  Chris Smith has also signed the Grover Norquest Pledge.
