Letter: Tea party would own Cramer in Congress

Kevin Cramer continues to put his rigid right-wing ideology over the good of our state and nation when it comes to wind energy.

Instead of maintaining the successful Production Tax Credit for companies that produce wind power, Cramer says “let the market sort it out.” But he apparently doesn’t mind – or understand – the incredible amount of support the government provides to other forms of energy. The military costs of securing foreign oil are staggering, not to mention the many tax breaks oil and coal companies get from government.

Hundreds of jobs in North Dakota are dependent upon this industry. It’s an industry we need to expand instead of cut.

His tea party zeal is obviously overruling common sense. This is not someone we should be electing to Congress.
