Mack, a Republican representing California's 45th Cngressional District, explains why she crossed party lines and voted in favor of the energy bill:
"It's beyond time for our nation to become energy independent and embrace future energy sources," said the seven-term congresswoman, who wrestled with the legislation and its potential economic effects before deciding to back it. "While not perfect, this bill takes bold steps forward that will help create new green jobs, build a stronger, more sustainable American energy supply and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
"There's much work to be done before this bill becomes law, and I will continue to seek bipartisan improvements that will move us forward in the most cost-efficient way and benefit all Americans."
Mack is a great American, one who chose to ignore party lines in order to help her nation become more secure through the goal of energy independence.
