Taxpayers hand out tens of billions each year to the fossil fuel industry, and what do we get except pollution, oil spills and global warming? Not a good deal, especially considering that the oil, coal and gas industries are already among the most profitable businesses on the planet.
Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Keith Ellison have proposed legislation to end $113 billion in subsidies and tax breaks to the fossil fuel industries.
Please sign our petition here asking Congress to pass these proposals:
The fossil fuel industry doesn’t need our money, and we should not be subsidizing industries that pollute the planet and threaten our future with global warming. That’s why I support Sen. Sanders’ and Rep. Ellison’s bill to eliminate $113 billion in tax breaks and subsidies for the fossil fuel industries – and call on my members of Congress to do the same.
