Congress Votes Against Ending Tax Subsidies for Oil Companies? You've Gotta Be Kidding!

| March 7, 2011

Where Hypocrisy & Gluttony Meet

The House of Representative recently considered a proposal to end tax subsidies for major oil companies.  Not surprising since the top 5 oil companies have made more than 1 Trillion Dollars in profits since 9/11.  Considering the fragile state of our economy and the furor raging over budget cuts one would think that the party who has been demanding fiscal responsibility would have been drawn to this proposal like bees to honey.  Not so, however, to every GOP house member who unanimously voted to continue paying out what will amount to more than 40 billion dollars in subsidies to these companies who are already swimming in money.  You’ve Got To Be Kidding!
