The President and Congress are hammering out a deal right now to balance our national budget -- and there are more than $10 billion in tax breaks to Big Oil, Coal and Gas on the table that we could finally eliminate as a way of lowering spending.

Right now, as the winter freeze looms over the northeast, there are still thousands of families homeless and desperate as a result of Hurricane Sandy. But we have a huge opportunity to turn this tragedy into concrete action to get them relief and protect all of us from future extreme weather events if we act now.

The President and Congress are hammering out a deal right now to balance our national budget -- and there are more than $10 billion in tax breaks to Big Oil, Coal and Gas on the table that we could finally eliminate as a way of lowering spending. (Yes, these are TAX BREAKS for the guys who pollute our air and accelerate global warming and extreme weather events like Sandy.) And yet, Republicans have proposed cutting aid to the poor and middle class instead. Seriously??!!

Sign the petition calling on Congress to stop giving our hard-earned tax dollars to wealthy polluters. If we reach 50,000 signatures, Avaaz will organize a team of hurricane survivors to go to Washington to share their stories with key members of Congress, and bring the impact of irresponsible energy policy directly to the chairs across their desks.

Thanks for signing to end polluter payouts!

Gladly signed since this is so important and we should NOT be rewarding the environmental destroyers for their misdeeds. That's just insane! Thanks J.L. A.
