    • On June 03, 2011, by BornRich - We need to close ALL tax loopholes and ALL tax subsidies for big oil. The nation is in a deep recession. We cannot allow giant corporations to continue to pay zero taxes while posting record profits. We cannot allow oil companies to continue to receive billions in tax breaks while posting record profits. We cannot allow cruise lines to continue raking in millions while paying no taxes. We cannot allow tax havens to continue to allow tax-dodgers to escape paying their fair share of taxes. First, lets remove all the loopholes and stop all corporate welfare. Then, let's ban lobbyists from ever lobbying the government to overturn these measures.
