    Bottom line: Despite the Administration’s rhetoric that has been so widely repeated in the press, the tax treatments in question are not “subsidies” that are in any way outside of the mainstream of tax treatments commonly available to all U.S. industries. Rather than being mostly a benefit to “big oil”, the repeal of these and other oil and gas industry-related tax provisions would mainly impact smaller independent producers and royalty owners. Such repeal would serve no legitimate public policy purpose, other than to unfairly discriminate via the tax code against one of the nation’s most productive – albeit easily demonized – manufacturing industries

    Poor Jeff ghost writer for usa0000000. He is having a bad day. can not get any thing right today.

    It would be a benefit to everyone if media outlets and their reporters would quit repeating Administration talking points on this issue, and instead engage in some real journalism on the subject. I doubt anyone in the oil and gas industry will be holding their breath waiting for that to happen.

    Hey! you beat me to it…but at least you left out the one ACTUAL subsidy…the one last listed under oil & natural gas, but is actually for biofuels…..not they give the biofuel people real subsidies, but then they aren’t oil & gas, they are actually another GREEN tax drain…Especially since it actually costs more and causes more pollution to add biofuels to gasoline. biofuel…

  • Doug Z


    Son of Watergate?’

    40 years later — to the week…

  • Doug Z

  • Stan T

    WOW…even Jon Stewart attacked Obama…guess he’s really in trouble…all the young people get their news from Jon Stewart, and now they know the truth about Obama….lol

  • Jeff

    Doug and Stan together have the brain power of a blown out light bulb.

  • SteveB

    Poor Jeff,
    He is living proof that some Women should be born Sterile.

  • Chriscee

    Stan and Doug are far more accomplished than you could ever dream of being Jeffie. Being a low information voter, like yourself, is NOT an accomplishment.

  • usa8888

    SteveB–you wouldn’t want one of your brain deads as president, would you?

  • usa8888

    The thing that leaves a mark, Steve, is Obama’s victory ….and the success of the economy in spite of all the right wing kook obstruction….

  • SteveB


    I would vote for my neighbors Dog before i would vote for Obama.. And i really hate that Dog… but still know he would do a better job then Oblamer has.

  • usa8888

    Steve–which of these fits you..
    –here is a psychographic profile of your group. How many of these attributes fit you personally? mostly white and skewing toward old age; mostly uneducated; many are racists and/or bigots; most are insensitive to others plights and hence greedy; many are religious fanatics; most hate government even though they like getting their Social Security check each month…they also like taking advantage of Medicare; almost all are backward thinking, owing to their lack of education……

  • Chriscee

    Seems to me Obama has become the irrelevant one.

  • SteveB

    I can say that none of them Describe any of the people on this page .. .and Zero of them Discribe me.. Not white. Not old enough to get SS Not on Medicare.. am College Educated, Like small government. All for giving people a Hand up. but not continuous Hand outs..

    Other then you. I have not seen anyone hatinig on other people or ATTACKING WOMEN the way you do.

  • Doug Z

    Prove it

    Jeff ghost writer for usa00000000000000000

    @us-a-hole: >>> Fox’ ratings show increased numbers of elderly viewers (over 2/3)over 65, with far right leanings). Rupert can’t be happy…. <<<

    PROVE IT! I'm calling you out, Robot. Where is the PROOF? We want to see it. For every 54 year old person in the demo, there likely is a 25 year old. And, for every 64 year old, there is a 35 year old watching Fox News.

    So where's your proof that 2/3rds of Fox's audience is 'elderly'? Facts, not bul-l$#it.

    I am going to hound you daily until you 'fess up and reveal where did you get this info, or did you make it up? Mostly got it from a libber-blogger

    Hey Guys, I think you really need to lay off my boys Jeff and USA. In their defense, as my beloved O. said about them just recently “THERES NO THERE THERE”.
