63. Raising taxes on gasoline consumers pay at the pump is a different issue entirely
from cutting the tax subsidies oil companies enjoy when they fill out their tax forms.

The only similarity I see offhand is that Republicans are not likely to pass either. No clue what Democrats would do, if they could, but I do know they controlled Congress (as much as anyone can nowadays) from 2006 until 2010 and the subsidies appear to be alive and well as we post.
