Which would you cut?



National Parks funding will be cut by $138 million while Big Oil will continue getting BILLIONS in handouts, unless Congress acts by March 1st.

Tell Congress to cut oil subsidies instead: http://bit.ly/StopOilSubsidies

1. Why aren't the oil subsidies affected by the sequester, I wonder?

That seems odd.

3. But Big Oil wouldn't be the most profitable industry in the history of commerce w/o the subsidies...

... oh wait, yes they would.

6. What does this subsidy number represent?

 

Is it specific to the oil and gas industry or an across the board tax break for all companies?
