Crazy Talk

Oh, no, he didn't just go there, did he? Oh, he did! Rep. John Fleming took center stage yesterday and complained that government grabs revenue from Big Oil and re-purposes it toward "phony green jobs." That's just crazy talk!

Okay, let's review: Oil revenue is through the roof. And yet Fleming and his pals are doing all they can to keep Big Oil's generous subsidies in place. And just how "phony" are these green jobs? The solar and wind sectors are blossoming like never before (see here, here, and here). And they're doing it without ruining the Gulf. Send a message to Congress: end oil subsidies and giveaways.
