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
Posted on February 28, 2008

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?

Now throw your little tantrum, and claim you won't post on here anymore. That lasted a whole day. be sure you eat those FACTS.
YOUR lack of comprehension is exactly one of the reasons that I have lost interest in this thread. I NEVER said that I would NEVER respond to another post.
It is fruitless to carry on a conversation with someone that YEARS behind in scholastic aptitude!
It is equally fruitless to post with a nano-brain that ONLY posts their convaluted, twisted, name calling position.
It is one thing to point out that someone is an idiot or a putz like you are. It is another thing to call derogatively someone a 'Teabagger" with NO basis even when being a Teabagger is NOT a negative but only an opposing point of view as being a Marxist, Liberal, Progressive, Conservative, Independent etc would be.
Such is the FIRST Amendment allows & protects.
YOU are a perfect example of one that has a weak position to present, they (YOU) then call others 'diaper wearers'
,'racists' & more because their (your) position is without merit.
Why have YOU NOT responded to Batavia Pops?
Answer: Your position is as clear as muddy water.
Once again YOU make me so very happy to NOT be part of YOUR family genome. Thank you, thank you, thank you so very much.

"One major tax break for energy companies is a nearly century-old benefit letting them deduct "intangible drilling costs" (IDC) immediately rather than over time.

Most of the IDC is for the labor costs of drilling a well.

Legislation drafted by Democratic Senator Robert Menendez would limit this break, among others. Ending it completely would raise $14 billion over a decade, according to the White House."

"Many tax experts across the political spectrum said the IDC is a clear exception made for oil."

Why do people want to tax production? Eliminate all taxes except consumption tax and the economy would grow again and eliminate unemployment.

In the United States, credible estimates of annual fossil fuel subsidies range from $14 billion to $52 billion annually, while even efforts to remove small portions of those subsidies have been defeated in Congress.

Wonder who in Congress keeps stopping those freebies being handed out to big oil companies? Up to $52 billion in free ride hand-outs?

Here let me get out of the way of the Conservative rage over this obvious free loading scheme. Cue the crickets...

You are one of the most twisted thinking people in the world or you are good at acting like it. Either way you earn 5 stars in either category.

Here let me get out of the way of the Conservative rage over this obvious free loading scheme. Cue the crickets...
Using a very broad definition applied by Oil Change International, the term “subsidies” refers to:“any government action that lowers the cost of fossil fuel energy production, raises the price received by energy producers, or lowers the price paid by consumers.” So based upon the first of these criteria, let’s assume that the president is referring to three types of oil and gas company tax “loopholes”: 1) an oil depletion allowance; 2) expensing drilling costs; and 3), a credit for taxes paid to foreign nations during foreign operations (a foreign tax credit). Yet in one form or another, these same advantages are extended to other industries as well, and often with more generous benefits.

The oil and gas extraction and refining has already been singled out to receive even fewer tax breaks than other industries. Whereas Section 199 of the “American Job Creation Act of 2004” provides a 9% deduction from net income for businesses engaged in “qualified production activities”, oil and gas was penalized and limited to a 6% deduction. Passed with strong bipartisan congressional support, the intent was to provide a competitive advantage to domestic companies engaged in product manufacturing, sales, leasing or licensing, and production-related software activities.

Many manufacturing industries, including farm equipment, appliances and pharmaceuticals take advantage of the full Section 199 deduction. Even highly profitable companies like Microsoft and Apple get those breaks, as do some foreign companies that operate factories in the U.S.

Oil depletion allowances, the first category, principally apply to small independent producers, with similar benefits available for all mineral extraction, timber industries, etc., allowing them to pass the depletion on to individual investors. Large integrated corporations haven’t been eligible for these since the mid-1970s. Expensing indirect drilling costs involves writing off expenses in the year incurred rather than capitalizing them and writing them off over several years. Closing this “loophole” would only change the timing of taking the expense, not the total amounts of the so-called “subsidy”.

John Kasich are you going to fill the vacancy of judge in Logan County that Michael L. Brady refused by not filing his bond? He not only has violated the Ohio Constitution and Statutes but Federal 5 USC 2906!

Or are you going to keep sweeping this under the rug because it is a Republican county and praying nobody cares??

Our forefathers would be ashamed I am sure....
