If the Dumbass Oil Company 's tax bill would have been $100,000 but a new tax credit for the oil industry gave them a 10% savings making their tax bill $90,000, does the company now have $10,000 that it did not have before?
Did or did not that new tax credit give them that $10K
Now you can whine & pretend it doesn't.
But the fact remains, there are oil industry subsidies & your salary is thereby subsidized by the government.
When will you quit mooching off of us taxpayers? When will you be able to support your own lard ass?
... idiots.

sub·si·dy
noun
A sum of money granted by the government or a public body to assist an industry or business.

A subsidy is money given.

A "tax break" is money not taken.

There's a difference.

So, still, to this day, you cannot find any evidence any subsidy to any oil company exists. All you have done is prove that you can't even define the word "subsidy".
Now, let's go over this again. There is no such thing as subsidies to oil companies. Subsidies to oil companies is an urban legend. They don't exist in the United States.
By the way, tell us what other industries get that same type of tax break.

ObamaFlowers

(Receptionist) Hello, Welcome to Obama Flowers, My name is Trina. How can I help you?
(Customer) Hello, I received an email from Professional Flowers stating that my flower order has been canceled and I should go to your exchange to reorder it. I tried your website, but it seems like it is not working. So I am calling the 800 number.
(Receptionist) Yes, I am sorry about the website. It should be fixed by the end of November. But I can help you.
(Customer) Thanks, I ordered a "Spring Bouquet" for our anniversary, and wanted it delivered to my wife.
(Receptionist Interrupting) Sir, "Spring Bouquets" do not meet our minimum standards, I will be happy to provide you with Red Roses.
(Customer) But I have always ordered "Spring Bouquets", done it for years, my wife likes them.
(Receptionist) Roses are better, sir, I am sure your wife will love them.
(Customer) Well, how much are they?
(Receptionist) It depends sir, do you want our Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum package.
(Customer) What's the difference?
(Receptionist) 6, 12,18 or 24 Red Roses.
(Customer) The Silver package may be okay, how much is it?
(Receptionist) It depends sir, what is you monthly income?
(Customer) What does that have to do with anything?
(Receptionist) I need that to determine your government flower subsidy, then I can determine how much your out of pocket cost will be. But if your income is below our minimums for a subsidy, then I can refer you to our FlowerAid department.
(Customer) FlowerAid?
(Receptionist) Yes, Flowers are a Right, everyone has a right to flowers. So, if you can't afford them, then the government will supply them free of charge.
(Customer) Who said they were a Right?
(Receptionist) Congress passed it, the President signed it and the Supreme Court found it Constitutional.
(Customer) Whoa.....I don't remember seeing anything in the Constitution regarding Flowers as a Right.
(Receptionist) It is not really a Right in the Constitution, but ObamaFlowers is Constitutional because the Supreme Court Ruled it a "Tax". Taxes are Constitutional. But we feel it is a Right.
(Customer) I don't believe this...
(Receptionist) It's the law of the land sir. Now, we anticipated most people would go for the Silver Package, so what is your monthly income sir?
(Customer) Forget it, I think I will forgo the flowers this year.
(Receptionist) In that case sir, I will still need your monthly income.
(Customer) Why?
(Receptionist) To determine what your 'non-participation' cost would be.
(Customer) WHAT? Your can't charge me for NOT buying flowers!
(Receptionist) It's the law of the land, sir, approved by the Supreme Court. It's $9.50 or 1% of your monthly income.....
(Customer)interrupting) This is ridiculous, I'll pay the $9.50..
(Receptionist) Sir, it is the $9.50 or 1% of your monthly income, whichever is greater.
(Customer) ARE YOU KIDDING ME? What a ripoff!!
(Receptionist) Actually sir, it is a good deal. Next year it will be 2%.
(Customer) Look, I'm going to call my Congressman to find out what's going on here. This is ridiculous. I'm not going to pay it.
(Receptionist) Sorry to hear that sir, that's why I had the NSA track this call and obtain the make and model of the cell phone you are using.
(Customer) Why does the NSA need to know what kind of CELL PHONE I AM USING?
(Receptionist) So they get your GPS coordinates sir
(Door Bell rings followed immediately by a loud knock on the door)
(Receptionist) That would be the IRS sir. Thanks for calling ObamaFlowers, have a nice day...

OBAMA SCARE: Fox News Fears ACORN Is Back To Push ObamaCare

Fox News has been engaged in a massive disinformation campaign against the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) for going on three years now. After all that time, and having exhausted the considerable creative resources that came up with twelve “Pants on Fire” lies about the program, Fox’s desperation is showing.

Recently Fox News went apoplectic over a phony allegation that millions of Americans will be victimized by hackers if they try to enroll in a new health care plan. Then they fear mongered over the horror of Americans voting due to the Affordable Care Act website providing users with an opportunity to register. And now Fox is trembling at the thought of ACORN zombies helping people to get health care coverage.

Iran enrichment capacity expanded dramatically on Obama's watch

By James Rosen
• Published December 04, 2013•
FoxNews.com

Before he paused to allow reporters to ask questions about the nuclear deal with Iran that he had just announced in Geneva, Secretary of State John Kerry seemed to anticipate one line of criticism about the accord -- that it effectively cedes to the Islamic regime the right to enrich uranium, despite half a dozen U.N. Security Council resolutions declaring the activity illegal. And he moved, preemptively, to address it.

"In 2003, when the Iranians made an offer to the former administration with respect to their nuclear program, there were 164 centrifuges," Kerry said in a news conference held in the early hours of Nov. 24. "That offer was not taken. Subsequently, sanctions came in, and today there are 19,000 centrifuges and growing."

In essence, the secretary of State was suggesting the staggering number of centrifuges that Iran now has effectively forced the hand of the P5+1 negotiators at the talks, making the placement of restrictions on Iran's nuclear program the only realistic prospect the negotiators could pursue. Kerry also suggested that had only President George W. Bush done the right thing a decade ago, the United States and its allies in the P5+1 -- Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia -- wouldn't have found themselves in such a precarious negotiating posture.

Yet a Fox News review of reports by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and analyses prepared by leading research institutions -- including the Arms Control Association, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and the Federation of American Scientists -- shows that the vast majority of Iran's enrichment capability came online during the Obama administration.

It is known that by late 2007, Iran possessed about 3,000 centrifuges. Over the course of Bush's final 12 to 15 months in the White House, it can be assumed safely that Iran added to, but probably did not fully double, the number of centrifuges it had installed. A fair estimate would accordingly place the number of the spinning machines that Iran had on hand at the beginning of 2009 at 5,000.

This would mean that roughly 25 percent of the regime's current total of centrifuges had been installed when the Bush-Cheney era ended. Put another way: Roughly 74 percent of the centrifuges Iran now has on hand were installed since the Obama-Biden team assumed office. Analysts say 10,000 of the total are actively enriching uranium to low levels, inconsistent with nuclear weapons production but well suited to the task should a decision be made to pursue that goal.

Yet in a series of interviews he gave before leaving Geneva, Kerry expanded on his theme, telling ABC News' George Stephanopoulos: "In 2003, Iran made an offer to the Bush administration that they would, in fact, do major things with respect to their program. They had 164 centrifuges. Nobody took that [deal]-- nothing has happened. Therefore, here we are in 2013 -- they have 19,000 centrifuges and they're closer to a weapon.

A spokesman for Kerry professed ignorance of the exact numbers involved. "We have not questioned the fact that Iran has made progress on enrichment and on developing a nuclear weapon," spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters on Dec. 2. "That's one of the reasons why we stepped up sanctions over the past couple of years."

But when confronted with the notion that at least 70 percent of the expansion in Iran's centrifuge program took place on President Obama's watch, Psaki countered: "I think what we're focused on at this point is the fact that we're now at a point where we are halting and rolling back the progress of their program and we're working towards a comprehensive agreement to bring an end to it."

*Why is Obama and his administration after 5 years of his policies still using 'BLAMING BUSH' for everything wrong?

The jets went to the Muslim Brotherhood. When the Muslim Brotherhood got tossed out of the government, the juts stopped going.

The recession caused by the Democrats' Marxist CRA program that collapsed our economy bottomed out. "Porkulus" just stuffed the pockets of cronies. The only thing that was "shovel ready" was the economy after the Democrats took over.

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?

Read the Constitution, dumbass. Then come back and tell us how much the Democrats increased the debt, you fucking moron.

Welfare numbers are up because the Democrats are driving up those numbers. There are 30+ million illegal aliens here while we are increasingly paying Americans to not do the work they are here doing.

Obama said "period".
What does "period" mean?
See? All Democrats are hypocrites.
An important precondition to enactment of the prescription drug benefit was that it not cost more than $400 billion over the first 10 years, a figure established in the budget resolution. Any figure higher than that would have been subject to a “point of order” by a single member of the House or Senate that would probably have derailed the legislation.

Thus it was a huge problem for Republicans when the chief actuary of the Medicare system, Richard S. Foster, concluded during the summer of 2003 that Part D would actually cost $530 billion over its first 10 years. But this fact was hidden from Congress and not revealed until it was reported by The New York Times on Jan. 30, 2004 — almost two months after the bill was signed into law.

Mr. Foster later discussed in detail the pressure exerted on him by Bush administration political appointees, in particular, Thomas A. Scully, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. In a 2004 article for a professional journal, Mr. Foster said:

Congressional activity on the legislation that became the Medicare modernization act got underway in May of 2003. In June, the then-administrator of C.M.S. ordered me to cease responding directly to congressional requests for actuarial assistance. Instead, I was directed to provide the responses to him for his review, approval and ultimate disposition. Following several vigorous discussions, the administrator made it clear that this was a direct order and that if I failed to follow it,“the consequences of insubordination are extremely severe.” I understood this statement to mean that I would be fired if I provided the requested information to Congress.

The inspector general for the Department of Health and Human Services later determined that Mr. Scully’s action was inappropriate, but by then Part D was in law and he had left government to become a lobbyist for drug companies.

The fact that Mr. Foster’s estimate and another from the Congressional Budget Office were well above the actual cost of Medicare Part D over the first 10 years is irrelevant. The point is that the legislation was thought to cost $400 billion in 2003. An estimate of $530 billion from the Medicare actuary would have killed the legislation or possibly forced Republicans to accept cost-containment measures opposed by the pharmaceutical industry.
