The House passed the Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation Tax Act of 2008 on a vote of 236 to 182. Senate Democratic leaders have indicated they would fast-track the bill to try to avoid a Republican filibuster…”It actually carves out tax breaks for Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez – courtesy of American taxpayers,” said Boehner. “This is unacceptable, and the Democratic leadership is irresponsible for bringing the bill to the House floor.”
All of this, of course, while raising taxes on the domestic oil industry. Those brilliant Democrats in congress, as some kind of moronic punishment, are taxing US Oil Companies because of our recent high gas prices. I suppose it would make sense if youre an idiot, but we all know that the oil companies will just pass along those tax costs to the consumer.
