    define subsidies and how much do you want all your poor friends to pay for a gallon of gas? its rich yuppies who think 8 dollar a gallon gas is good-not the blue collar workers your party claims to want to help

    I agree, as all subsidies to all entities should be ended.

    I am asking you what are subsidies? not being taxed twice on income earned in other jurisdictions? being able to write off loses like other businesses?


    speaking of not making it on their own-what about the 47% who need us to pay their federal taxes for them? Oil companies provide a valuable service that is necessary for this country. what do most of those on welfare do for us?

    Okay fine I'll accept that you think they can not make it on their own.
