Big oil bought Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions for $209,150 and Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby for $130,700. Earlier this month, 48 senators, including Shelby and Sessions, put Big Oil before the American people and helped defeat a bill that would have ended tax breaks (subsidies) for the five biggest oil companies.
So, with their usual duplicity and forked-tongue speech, they eliminate funding for social programs that are necessary and vote to continue subsidies for billion-dollar oil. Not to worry, though. We can always continue borrowing money from China.
