Bachmann fires back at ‘ultra-liberal’ enviro group

Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-Minn.) campaign on Wednesday bashed the League of Conservation Voters in response to LCV’s decision to work against her in the 2010 election cycle.

Here’s a statement her campaign released:

The League of Conservation Voters further cements its status as an ultra-liberal group obsessed with arcane restrictions that do little to help the environment and a great deal to harm the economy.

As a member of the Energy Solutions Working Group in the House, Congresswoman Bachmann is dedicated to an ‘all of the above’ approach that will increase the supply of clean, affordable, American-made energy today and encourage investment for newer, more efficient energy technologies for the future. In fact, she has already introduced the Promoting New American Energy Act that would accelerate tax depreciation to 3 years for investments in newer, cleaner, more efficient energy technologies, including solar, wind, and geothermal investments. She will continue to fight against energy tax increases as proposed in the Democrat’s energy proposal and stand up for Minnesotan families and small businesses.
