OILY BUSINESS
What’s slicker than a multibillion dollar oil company? The politicians what sanction their corruption at the expense of the American people. Thats who.


The oil industry is ripe with corruption and it’s us to We The People to take a stand and say “enough is enough”. According to a September 25, 2019 ​report issued by the US Government Accountability Office (GAO)​, oil companies such as Chevron, Shell, BP, and Exxon Mobil, have raked in over 90 BILLION dollars in revenue all the while managing to forgo payment of nearly 18 BILLION dollars in royalties thanks to a loophole.

In 1995, a ruling was made to encourage oil companies to drill in the Gulf of Mexico. The plan was to offer a temporary break in the payment of royalties for oil companies, however, it was poorly written and allowed several wells to operate permanently.


Why is that a big deal? Because is prevents American taxpayers from receiving a fair market value on the oil and gas extracted from public property. We too have a voice in the use of American owned property and now is the time for us to speak up.


President Trump and the Republicans are doing everything in their power to make sure that this issue gets brushed under the rug. And with former ExxonMobile CEO Rex TIller serving as the Secretary of State, this corruption will no doubt continue unchecked unless we come together and put an end to it today.
