Letter to Supercommittee: End Taxpayer Subsidies to Big Oil to Reduce Deficit

Yesterday our friends at Oil Change International, along with 52 other groups, sent a letter to the members of the supercommittee demanding that the elimination of government handouts to the oil, coal and gas industries be a central part of the deficit reduction plan they are to present to the full Congress by November 23rd.

End Big Oil Taxpayer Subsidies to Reign in Deficit!

"Cutting Medicare for low and middle-income seniors? On the table. Closing loopholes for profitable, multinational corporations? Not under discussion." Public Campaign Action Fund's David Donnelly and Oil Change International's Steve Kretzmann had an op-ed yesterday in The Hill calling for ending Big Oil taxpayer subsidies as a means to address the national deficit.
