Tell the Senate to end tax breaks for oil, gas and coal

Millions of Americans struggle to make ends meet. But the world’s richest and most powerful companies--billion dollar corporate oil and gas giants--are getting hundreds of millions of dollars, every year, from the U.S. government in the form of tax breaks.

Numerous studies find that eliminating subsidies for fossil fuel production would not have a significant impact on consumer gas prices. The Department of Treasury estimates less than a penny a gallon cost increase.

Tell the Senate that it's time to end these tax breaks for wealthy and powerful oil, gas and coal companies.

      “How can we be so arrogant? The planet is, was, and always will be stronger than us. We can't destroy it; if we overstep the mark, the planet will simply erase us from its surface and carry on existing. Why don't they start talking about not letting the planet destroy us?”

      Our country is basically out of money, yet the government continues to give tax breaks to the uber rich and gas, coal and oil companies. Even during the shut down oil and gas companies are in our national parks with our government's permission. When will our government wake up? Hopefully before it's too late to salvage our country.
