Paid for by big oil

2 posts in this topic

Right now, even as they make the biggest profits in American

history, oil companies like ExxonMobil are getting $13 billion

in tax breaks.

But all that could change when Congress comes back to Washington

this week. Environmental champions like Speaker Pelosi are

working to strip these tax giveaways and make a major investment

in clean energy like wind and solar power.

Can you tell Congress to end tax breaks for big oil and invest

in clean energy?

Unfortunately, too many Republicans in Congress are paid for by

Big Oil and are opposing efforts to repeal these tax breaks -

even at a time of record oil profits. To create a new energy

future in this country, we need to send Congress a clear

message.

The petition says:

"With rising gas prices and America's growing dependence on oil,

it is clear that too many politicians in Washington are paid for

by Big Oil.

"We need to stop letting oil companies run our energy policy. To

make America truly energy independent, we call on Congress to

boost production of clean energy, end all tax breaks for oil

companies, and resist the false promise of drilling in

environmentally sensitive areas.

"We need an energy policy that isn't paid for by Big Oil."

After you sign, please forward this message on to your friends

and family.

There could be votes to repeal tax breaks for the oil industry

and instead invest in clean, renewable energy as soon as this

week.

If enough people join this petition, we can raise the profile of

this issue - and force Congress to decide whose side they're on.

With rising gas prices, increasing global warming pollution, and

America's growing dependence on oil, it is clear that too many

politicians in Washington are paid for by Big Oil.

Tell Congress to end tax breaks for Big Oil and invest in clean

energy instead.
