Boy, did they ever! The Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers and National Automobile Dealers Association launched a new website called autochoice.org. There is a CAFE standard in the energy bill but the Senate pushed for tougher standard for light trucks. Autochoice.org tells you what percent of people in a political district have light trucks. Wow, is that site tailored-made for Senators on the fence on this issue or what?
Do you think Markey will come out of conference and we will see a stronger CAFE standard? Think again! Dingell has been in the Congress longer than Obama has been alive. If you hit on a page, he probably knows about it. He's about to retire and he is not going to end on a losing note. Anyone that dares get in the way of a.) Dingell trying to secure his legacy, b.) an unholy horde of lobbyists and maybe even c.) a Presidential veto, is nuts. Go get 'em.
