donations and big oil
« on: May 22, 2011, 09:07:33 am »
Hello everyone I have been following what has been going on in the congress and it seems that big oil has won again the subsidies and tax breaks that they get have been voted in again ....

Senator Brown from MA voted for not repealing these tax breaks HOW can he and others do that upon further research of course he received donations from oil for his campaign.....

Donn't donations mean a tax deduction for whomever gives it?????

People out in FC land How do you feel.... What are your state representatives doing... Shouldn't they be held accountable for putting the Oil Companies before the American people???>:(      Click here to see what your elected officials are taking from the big oil companies >:(

Of course they should be held accountable, but they most likely won't be.  They and their apologizers will find all kinds of excuse to absolve them.  I've heard bleating about how it's SO UNFAIR to go after the oil companies.  Just ignore the fact they're making obscene profits and still getting handouts from the government.
