Oil industry doesn’t need help

SHARE Oil industry doesn’t need help

Can anyone give a rational reason why the oil industry — while reaping record profits as high as $25 billion a year — needs tax breaks? I listened closely as Congress debated the so-called energy bill. The stupidity of this Congress in giving tax breaks to the oil industry will cost billions of dollars this country desperately needs to pay for even our most basic services.

As consumers we continue to be fleeced while the oil industry lines its pockets with the blessings of our elected officials.
