When a nascent industry benefits the country, government can help establish that industry by subsidizing it, but once that industry is well established and profitable, subsidies should be withdrawn and redirected to serve national needs. To maintain subsidies for highly profitable companies. is simply welfare for the rich. This is exactly the problem with subsidizing fossil fuel companies, who are also among our nation’s worst polluters.

"We’ll never get to renewable energy if we keep offering gobs of cash to oil, coal and gas companies to continue business as usual. The End Polluter Welfare Act would strip away these obscene subsidies…" Amen! Right on Bernie!:)

So happy to be a co-signer! If we continue to provide Big Oil with big subsidies, what incentive will they have to develop renewable energy sources? I fully agree that they need to be held accountable for the pollution they're creating. It seems that the average citizen just can't get a break! We pay high energy prices, we pay for Big Oil's subsidies, we have to live with the pollution they create and/or help to pay for its clean-up! We have to break the cycle or it will never end...

Had previously signed Tom. With the rethuglicans in control I doubt this would ever pass. Those oil companies , think personhood, would not be contributing to their re-election campaigns. Not to say there aren't Dems in on this too. Disgusting...

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"

You cannot currently send a star to TomCat because you have done so within the last week.
