Corporate polluters receive billions of our tax dollars each year in
welfare, and what do we get? Pollution, oil spills and a bank account
running in the red.
Two members of Congress are saying, "Thanks but no thanks" to this wasteful
use of our money and are proposing to end all subsidies and tax breaks to
the fossil fuel industry -- saving us $113 billion.
Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Keith Ellison have proposed legislation to end
this waste. Sign here to join as a citizen co-sponsor of their bills to end
$113 billion in taxpayer giveaways to the fossil fuel industry.
It's not like they need our money. The oil, gas and coal industries are
among the most profitable on the planet, making tens of billions in profit
every fiscal quarter.
Meanwhile, Congress is cutting crucial health and education programs that
millions of needy Americans depend on -- programs that could use some of
that $113 billion now lining the walls of some corporate oil company's
Energy subsidies should be focused on clean, green energy sources like wind
and solar, which don't damage the environment and threaten our future with
Sanders' and Ellison's bills are a great opportunity to end welfare for
corporate polluters. Will you join me today and show Congress that America
wants to end this waste?
