With gas prices rising ever faster to the $5 per gallon mark, something needs to be done and done fast. One of the Presidential campaigns has a plan to deal with this. John McCains economic plan will give the 5 largest oil companies in this country a total $3.8 billion in tax savings. The plan is that eventually theyll have more money than they really know what to do with and when that happens the savings will start to trickle down to the American consumer. Afterall, theres only so much a major corporation can do with that kind of money. McCains two point strategy involves cutting the corporate tax rate from 35% to 25% and then deduct immediately all their costs in equipment and technology. This strategy is the perfect example of trickle down economics and will bear dividends. Hopefully, McCain can get his chief political adviser Charlie Black to talk to the two oil companies hes a registered lobbyist for and get them to accept the tax cut in the spirit it is given. Isn't that really what good government about--People helping people? Exxon/Mobil - $1.2 billion savings under McCain plan Chevron - $480 million savings under McCain plan ConocoPhillips - $1.2 billion savings under McCain plan Valero Energy -$550 million savings under McCain plan Marathon - $370 million savings under McCain plan Just think if they pass even a fraction of that savings onto the American people.
