    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?

    The insanely funny premise of this thread is that the oil companies don't get tax breaks because there's no such thing as a tax break.

    You forgot the link
    Matters not

    Think with me
    If Exxon makes 10.00 profit and pays 1.00 tax on that, how is that a subsidy?
    IT IS THERE MONEY TO START WITH

    The federal govt is not subsidizing Exxon, there taxing them the same way any business that makes profit gets taxed

    exxon used there capital to start exxon
    same with drilling
    same with production, refinment, sales
    same, same, same

    at the end they made a profit, at no time during this event did the federal govt "give" them any-thing

    At the end of this event, Exxon paid taxes on that profit
    US govt did nothing but collect wealth the same way they collect it from us
    you goto work
    you earn
    you apy taxes on those earnings

    Oh yea, record profits mean record taxes

    All big companies get 'tax breaks' to seed commerce...jobs. Obama using the word 'subsidy' is an outright lie. Companies are qallowed to keep more of thier money. It's that simple.

    Can't help it if Obama is butthurt with the Oil companies because of his trying to force expensive alternatives has backfired and cost the taxpayers billions.

    It's interesting that you didn't jump on the first poster who commented on the OP's mangling of the language, but then again I doubt that poster has made a monkey of you often enough to earn a vendetta status. :lol::lol:

    Certainly!

    I'm going to quote the other one he responded to as well. Why respond to someone that you aren't responding to? :confused: Oh well...here's the first post:
