Please support President Obama’s plan -- included in his budget proposal -- to cut billions of taxpayer subsidies to the giant oil and gas industries. These companies are making record profits and don’t need handouts from our nation’s taxpayers.
If the federal government is going to subsidize energy, then that money should be used for ending energy waste and funding clean energy options. PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL NOW

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined.
