John Boehner Open To Repealing Oil Company Tax Breaks

Post by Guest on Tue Apr 26, 2011 11:30 am

John Boehner is the most powerful Republican in Washington and his remarks could signal a significant change of heart. Republicans have blocked attempts by Democrats to curb oil company subsidies.

Boehner did not endorse the idea, however.

"I want to see the facts. I don't want to hear a bunch of political rhetoric," Boehner said. "I want to know what impact this is going to have on job creation here in America."

I think that Boehner is a smart politician and he can see that the tide in America is turning. He can see that, not too long from now, there will be an outrage at the billions given to oil companies while we are paying $5 a gallon for gas.

Watch what he does not what he says. He is bought and paid for.

Boehner's spokesman was out the next morning walking back his statement about big oil subsidies.

"The speaker made clear in the interview that raising taxes was a nonstarter, and he's told the president that,” Steel said. “He simply wasn't going to take the bait and fall into the trap of defending 'Big Oil' companies.”

From March where he really stands, he was for big oil before he was against it:)

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) voted against a House measure yesterday that would have cut subsidies for the largest oil companies, which would have saved taxpayers an estimated $53 million. The vote came as part of the “continuing resolution” debate aimed at averting a government shutdown as Congress and the White House negotiate the federal budget.

Speaker Boehner drew immediate criticism for his vote from two public interest organizations, Public Campaign Action Fund and the League of Conservation Voters, who noted that Boehner and his leadership PAC have received at least $437,105 in campaign cash from oil and gas industry employees and political action committees during his time in Congress, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
