US Senate rejects bid to end oil, gas industry tax breaks

The US Senate Thursday rejected a bill that would have stripped billions of dollars' worth of tax subsidies from oil and natural gas companies and funneled that money to renewable-energy producers. The bill failed on a vote of 51-47. It needed 60 votes for approval.

Earlier this morning, during a rose garden speech President Obama said, “Today, members of Congress have a simple choice to make, They can stand with big oil companies, or they can stand with the American people.”

    Gee Rick how did they vote, for or against big oil. I love how Obama changes in mid stream putting the blame on the other guy. He's lucky to make it this far in his first term? What a F-en loser.

    Also I'm glad that this Ho Hum character has got you goat. Just like the other politician characters that you voted in that are showing there true colors finally.
