Republicans Hold Out for Big Oil

This is the short of it folks and why should the oil companies who have enjoyed record profits on the backs of working people and poor of this country not have to pay a little out of their loot? The argument my friends is simply this; The GOP answered back simply this; It would ultimately hurt us the average Americans, somehow they figure that taxing record profits on big oil would hurt us.

One of the biggest windbags in the Senate and I'm ashamed to say he is from this state which happens to be among the poorest had this to say; Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said, "Hitting the gas companies might make for good campaign literature or evening news clips, but it won't address the problem. This bill isn't a serious response to gas prices. It is just a gimmick."
