Over the past decade, the big five oil companies - BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil and Shell - have earned more than $1 trillion in profits. At the same time, these oil companies also enjoy billions in special tax breaks. It's time to fight back.

I would but both of mine are already very much on board with this. The only proud thing about MN these days is our two Senators and our Democratic governor.

I'm still disgusted with Wreckson-Morebull's failure to finish cleaning their drunken captain's oil spill in Alaska's Prince William Sound and with BP for their halfway measures throughout the Gulf of Mexico oil rig scam and subsequent massive spill. Cut 'em off, they deserve no 'record profits' while still under subsidy and tax breaks!

''SIGNED''.....thanks Cal....all these big oil companies are doing, is destroying the earth. They make trillions of dollars and on top of that, they get tax breaks. How wrong is that? I think the American people should have a say in what goes on and not just our government letting big oil get away with whatever they want to do. This is not right. It's time that they give us a break!!!!!!!

In his first budget after taking office last year, Corbett cut $1 billion to public schools, a major reason so many homeowners saw higher school property tax bills.

Deal reached on tax breaks for Pa. refinery

Top state Republican lawmakers have reached an agreement on a package of tax breaks that Gov. Tom Corbett has sought in hopes of encouraging the construction of a multibillion-dollar petrochemical refinery and an associated chemical manufacturing industry in Pennsylvania, lawmakers and legislative aides said Thursday.

Under the agreement, there would be no limit on the tax break — Corbett had proposed capping it at $66 million a year, or almost $1.7 billion total.

Royal Dutch Shell is based in the Netherlands.

After Taking Millions From Natural Gas, Pennsylvania Gov. Threatens To Veto Any Taxes On Industry

So why has Corbett adamantly opposed taxing the natural gas industry? One reason could be the massive amount of campaign contributions the industry has given the governor. Pennsylvania has no individual campaign finance limits, which has helped the industry donate more than $1,042,116 to Corbett’s campaign for governor and $361,207 to Corbett while he was the state’s attorney general.

Isn't it a shame, that we have to keep reminding our legislators, for whose interests they should be working.
