A fact is something that can be proven, not something a liberal makes up.You guys claim you want to stop these government handouts and free rides. I know. Let's start with the $70 billion in subsidies, with most going to the oil and gas sector.
Wonder why no outrage from your camp about those freebies being handed out? Oh...that's right.
Every Tea Party politician is directly paid by oil billionaires and you guys are corporate fetch boys.
How's them FACTS doing you?
Oil and Gas Company Tax Breaks

Oil Company Tax Breaks?
Both leading Democratic candidates have referred to tax breaks to oil companies:
Both candidates are referring to H.R. 6, the 2005 energy bill that contained $14.3 billion in subsidies for energy companies. However, as we’ve reported numerous times, a vast majority of those subsidies (all but $2.8 billion) were for nuclear power, energy-efficient cars and buildings, and renewable fuels research. In addition, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service, the tax changes in the 2005 energy bill produced a net tax increase for the oil and gas companies, as we’ve reported time and time and time again. They did get some breaks, but they had more taken away.
Gee, let me think now. Who was President back in 2005? WTF was in Congress in 2005?
How's them facts doing you Canton?
