Thanks Nancy, for a woman made into a big bad wolf by the Juggernaut prior to the elections, you have turned out to be a breath of fresh air for America. Hot off the press, passage of a bill by a 264/163 vote that is aimed at 'big oil' and valued over $14 billion over 10 years.
Excerpt from Steny Hoyer; "The oil and gas industry is extraordinarily well established and well off," said House Democratic leader Steny Hoyer. "It does not need the American taxpayer's help to be successful or to make a dollar."
But think about 163 of our so called leaders still voted for 'big oil' over the average American tax payers.
This wraps up the 100 hours which was completed in 87 hours, but darkness still lays ahead in the Senate where Republicans insisted on attaching an $8.3 billion dollar tax break to business concerning the minimum wage increase. The ethics legislation is also being derailed in the Senate where Democrats have a very thin majority, the Republicans want to attach legislation to this concerning a line-item veto.
