At a recent town hall, a constituent asked Representative Michael Burgess if he would ever support the FRAC Act. His answer was an emphatic “No!” even though he is fully aware that Texas has no regulation specific to hydraulic fracturing.
If you check the Dirty Energy Money website, you can see why Burgess isn’t interested in doing anything that might upset his Big Gas. He is a paid protector. I love the way this website has Burgess’ picture in the center with spokes going out and on each spoke is the logo for an oil and gas company that funds Burgess’ political policies. Hover your cursor over the logo and you can see how much influence that particular company wields in shaping Burgess’ policies.
Notice that the Tea Party funder, Koch Oil, is one of Burgess’ biggest funders.
