In case you haven't heard, many of the House Republicans have given up their paid vacations to work towards a solution for the current energy crisis. The House Democrats left the House, turned off the lights and the mikes, and left town rather than even allow the issues up for debate.
Speaker Pelosi has actually refused to even allow this topic to come up for debate. http://abcnews.go.com/video/playerIndex?id=5504708
They. Can't. Stop. The. Signal.
House representatives are blogging and Twittering from the House floor as they call for Speaker Pelosi to call Congress back for a special session to discuss the energy options available to us.

We have a voice. We will not be shut up just because someone doesn't want to talk about an issue, just because they are willing to let American gas prices reach $10 per gallon.
We have the willpower and ingenuity to find our way out of this crisis, but if we are not able to even drive our cars, this crisis will not be solved.
Speak out! Call Congress back!
