Amazing, this movie changed the GOP senators mind, 9 of them.

Stunning they say, Senate Republicans watched this movie, returned to the chamber and reversed an earlier procedural vote which had killed the Mendendez bill S.2204 - Repeal Subsidies and Tax Breaks for the Big 5 Oil Companies.  THEY VOTED AGAINST BIG OIL, supporting S.2204 after watching To the Arctic which will be released this Friday.  GOP Senator Mitch McConnell said, "I am calling on all Americans, Democrats and Republicans, to take a stand to defend the Arctic from future oil and gas drilling.  If we're going to subsidize energy, it must be clean, renewable and respect the environment".

I never thought I would hear this, nor hear that 9 GOP changed their votes.  Maybe I'm dreaming.  Well, go see this movie, it must be a mighty powerful piece of cinema.

  1. Yo are forgeting that this is an election year and everything is about politics. Mitch McConnell and the Republicans don't give a fuck about preserving the Arctic. The issue behind this is that Obama has called for oil exploration in the Chuckchi Sea off nw Alaska.
    They are trying to drive a wedge between Obama and the tree-huggers - nutin more.
