57. Waiting to see what actually happens (if anything) may be prudent.
Edited on Sat May-07-11 06:39 AM by No Elephants
As Reply 44. and others on this thread point out, Obama did not run on this or try cutting oil subsidies when he had the House and almost 60 votes in the Senate.

With the House now being solidly Republican, this has become a very safe thing for Obama to say (see Reply 37 and others), as well as good for campaign mode, especially when the WH is proposing cutting corporate taxes in general. See links in Reply 50.

So, waiting to see what actually happens (if anything) before either kvelling or kvetching may be the wisest course.
