    Its there money to start with (via us, the consumer). no-one is "giving" them any-thing from the US govt

    People pay taxes, not corporations. raise taxes on Exxon, there going to raise the cost of there product

    ANd yet there the president is claiming that Exxon is getting a subsidy

    So why did the Senate fail to pass a bill to end them if they don't exist?

    so if obama is un true about this, then of course the senate will be different
    Its no different than your income tax (in general)
    You have to make the wealth prior to having it taken away. Also raising the tax rate Exxon pays that will only raise the amount we pay for there product

    Oil company executives acknowledged the existence of subsidies in testimony on Capitol Hill.

    The OP is an idiot; he is denying common knowledge and inarguable fact, which is the worst form of idiocy.

    Your first step in earning some respect around here would be for you to show some respect for the English language.

    Here's the bill...

    http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/112/s2204/text

    It would have ended tax breaks for the top five "Big Oil" companies. You know...the ones that are currently raking in HUGE profits.

    You would want to kick someone off Welfare that got a job, right? Why would you support giving big oil companies tax breaks (that only effect THEM) when they are making money?
