    House Approves Taxes on Oil Companies


    Aug 5, 3:32 AM (ET)
    By H. JOSEF HEBERT

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Declaring a new direction in energy policy, the House on Saturday approved $16 billion in taxes on oil companies, while providing billions of dollars in tax breaks and incentives for renewable energy and conservation efforts.

    Republican opponents said the legislation ignored the need to produce more domestic oil, natural gas and coal. One GOP lawmaker bemoaned "the pure venom ... against the oil and gas industry."

    So, our gas prices will jump, and everyone will start shouting, "Those evil, capitalist oil companies! It's all their fault!" then they will continue to elect the same socialists... I mean liberals over and over.
