    Because that's populist ignorance. Raising taxes on companies that are shedding jobs in this country will only cause them to shed those jobs even more quickly.

    I wish we could find a single libertarian who has balls, and isn't on estrogen pills. I wish one would run and win, but I guess no one votes for people that merely engage in party bashing without offering solutions, beside legalizing pot.

    Yea so the president wants to end the "subsidies" to and direct that money towards green energy.
    I'd rather keep the oil subsidies, if that's the case.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I wish your trolling ass could actually for once form an actual argument but I think Jesus will appear on earth before that will happen.

    Oil companies don't actually get much in the way of real-live subsidies, but the ones they do get, I agree, should be cut off, right along with the subsidies to the green energy flops that try to pass themselves off as legitimate businesses.

    However, I think farm subsidies should remain in place. If you like foreign oil, you're going to love foreign food.

    Why in the world should we pay farmers to not grow crops?

    Don't know what the source of your numbers is nor can I explain Panama or Puerto Rico (the later is actually a U.S. territory) but all of the other locations listed in your survey are important oil producing states (except Egypt), which would explain the low prices. Chavez subsidizes oil prices in Venezuela. Look at other DEVELOPED countries like those in Europe, Canada, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan and you will find that in nearly all of them, prices are higher, often SIGNIFICANTLY higher, than in the United States...

    You do realize that farmers are paid to not raise crops, that farmers are told what crops to grow, and that the subsides only force the prices to be lower in FOREIGN markets right?
