I'd use simple math to figure this one out.

If oil company profits - tax subsidies = positive number, then stop subsidies.

They did in 2005 yet the community organizer still voted in favor of continuing.

Should you be referred to as "the waiter" since you mentioned it is a previous job you had? How about referring to the man as The President. Show the office he holds some respect, if not the man.

A politician switching position? How rare a situation that is. He should be more like Romney and stand his ground forever on things.

Only Ron Paul never switches sides.

Bringing up a question about switching positions is not a great idea when your party is going to be putting Romney up. Talk about people in glass houses throwing stones.

I think they should.  If they can't make a profit let them die.

The difference is I don't act like a waiter any more.


>>I think they should.

I'm fine with ending subsidies as well, but I would also want the EPA's regulations out of the way as well.

He isn't organizing communities anymore. He is running the country, whether you agree with the way he does it or not, that is what he is doing.

Balance. Lighter regulations I agree with. No regulations I don't. The EPA is needed, just they have to lighten up.
