Your Forests Bulldozed with Your Tax Dollars

As a taxpayer in America, I am furious that my tax dollars are funding projects that plan to wipe out our National Forests for the profits of big oil, mining, timber and real estate executives.

Stop the sale of America's national heritage!>>

Imagine a country where national parks are no longer, and all we have to experience natural beauty is a 300 square-foot neighborhood park covered in tan bark. At the rate this administration is planning to bulldoze, this is not so far from reality.

Plans to cut down trees also completely ignore the lives or well-being of the wildlife that call these forests home. Many threatened and endangered species are on the brink of being wiped out due to reckless deforestation plans.

And if that wasn't enough, these plans also disregard the health and everyday needs of local communities. For example, The Forest Service proposed to fill up to 5,500 logging trucks with trees from the Daniel Boone National Forest - even though it will damage the water supply for more than 80,000 Kentuckians.

Tell Senator Reid and Speaker Pelosi that you will not part with your National Forests without a fight.>>

Sincerely,

Emily
