Example - Green jobs - Growing Clean Economy

From a Repulican to the mitt and representatives!

businesses supporting clean energy have become a target for disparagement for politicians, some of whom are Republicans like me.

Green jobs can help pull nation out of recession
October 18, 2012 - As a heating, ventilation and air conditioning engineer, I know a thing or two about hot air, and there's been a lot of it in the presidential campaign.

Like many business owners, I hoped to hear the candidates address how their policies would allow businesses to continue to grow and provide a full range of benefits to their employees. But for businesses like mine, that request fell on deaf ears and was instead replaced with sound bites and incomplete information.

In attempt to distinguish between winners and losers in the first debate, Gov. Mitt Romney lumped loan guarantees by the government with tax credits that encourage homeowners and businesses to invest in energy efficiency that will help to reduce our dependence on foreign sources of fossil fuel.

In this economic climate, no political leader should disparage jobs, industries or businesses that support families and invest in local economies.

So, Mr. Romney here's my story.
