Get your facts straight, the big 4 oil companies paid 41% of their income into federal taxes.. they made .02 per gallon vs the taxes(depending on what state you live in) 1.20-1.80 tax per gallon.Join the Republican Party and fight for the oil companies right to be subsidized by taxpayers. Clearly Exxon needs a subsidy from taxpayers, since they only made 15 billion dollars last quarter. Someone has to pay income taxes, since they don't.
Exxon spent 4.1 billion on exploring an oil field in alaska that contains 4 times the oil of our current oil field on the north slope, yet 4 idiots appointed by Obama, deny them the permit to drill. It seems that we talk with no facts or out of both sides of our mouth
