    Ok here we go again congress is going to raise tax on oil 4 times what it is....(3 billion) why to pay for oil spill clean up, and at the same time say the oil co. will have to pay for the clean -up.


    WHAT are they going to do with the 3 billion they get, if the oil co. pay the goverment back...refund the taxes (NOT)

    You all need to learn how to share and spread the wealth. If you have enough money to buy gas for your car, you have too much money. There are some people just hoping for some change. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Reminds me of my sister back in the 70's. We went to Sunset Strip where a hippie asked her if she had any spare change for the cause. She said, "My cause is spare change", and on we walked.

    Oil is currently trading for about $70 per barrel, the current tax is $.08/ barrel. Raising the tax 400 percent is $.32/barrel, hardly a drop in the bucket for the overall price of a barrel of oil. That is a tax of about .05%

    Yep, I think they are going to kill me with new taxes. [​IMG]

    I know folks who work the black market every time taxes are raised more money is made black market and the gov gets cut out of a little bit more LOLOLOL they will never learn . Read up on the black market sometime, in the US a lot of taxes never get collected . Not usually a fan of wiki here is a little about it

    Didn't Obama promise not to raise taxes on anyone who make less than $250K/year?

    Time to sell the van and buy a wagon to hitch the horses too I guess. Everytime I hear anything about our government anymore I just feel like yelling bah humbug and slamming a door.

    mom'sfolly :

    Oil is currently trading for about $70 per barrel, the current tax is $.08/ barrel. Raising the tax 400 percent is $.32/barrel, hardly a drop in the bucket for the overall price of a barrel of oil. That is a tax of about .05%

    Yep , that a 400% increase ,will raise 3 billion more for them to spend. They just keep adding more taxes and try to hide it under something else.

    If the oil company have to pay for clean up, why do they need this tax ?????


    Guess people that make under 200,000 don't need gas..........​
