The House was set to take up a bill, imposing new taxes on gasoline to provide funds for the clean up of BP's spill, today. That did not happen, but the bill is now set for vote tomorrow, May 26th. Here's a link to the summary of the bill: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h111-4213&tab=summary Here's the Full Text (I hope): http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h111-4213 Here's an article about this everything-but-the-kitchen-sink bill: Oil tax increase would help pay to clean up spills This bill already passed the Senate; if if passes the House there's very little chance it can be halted at the Executive point. Please consider pressuring your Reps NOW, TONIGHT. Here's a link to HOR contact information: United States House of Representatives, 111th Congress, 2nd Session IMO, if American taxpayers have to underwrite the clean up, that's unavoidable. If new taxes are necessary, I'm willing to listen to why that might be. But these new taxes should apply ONLY to imported oil. Let's at least put BP at a competitive disadvantage if we, the taxpayer, are about to be hosed AGAIN. America DOES NOT need another 2,500 page bill the public (and likely most legislators) cannot parse through before it is passed. Since tax breaks can legally be made retroactive, I just don't see the urgency for passage of this bill.
