Hold Sen. Rubio Accountable for Voting to Extend Subsidies to Big Oil

    1. Petition by

      Save Our Shores! Florida

The largest oil companies recently announced that they had made more than $25 billion in the first three months of 2011- up about 30% from 2010. On Tuesday, May 17th, Senator Rubio voted to continue giving tax subsidies to the most profitable companies in the world.

In fact, over the last 10 years, the largest oil companies in this country have made almost $1 trillion in profit. During that period, some of them have paid no federal income taxes at all, in fact, have gotten rebates (in addition to the tax subsidies they already receive).

Floridians made hundreds of calls, collected petitions and wrote Senator Rubio e-mails urging him to END tax breaks to oil companies, but Marco Rubio STILL voted to continue giving tax subsidies to oil companies. Now it's time to keep the pressure on and make sure Senator Rubio knows we disagree with how he voted and we won't forget.
