Tax Breaks for BIG OIL instead of OIL ALTERNATIVES

What if there was a vote to decide if $13.5 billion in tax breaks for oil companies should go into oil alternatives, like solar and wind? What would you want your Senator to do?

Well, as you might have guessed, there was such a vote. We needed 60 votes to prevail, and 59 of them were in. But John McCain ducked the vote. [U.S. Senate Roll Call Vote, December 13, 2007 “Renewable Fuels, Consumer Protection, and Energy Efficiency Act of 2007"]

As a result, instead of powering millions of homes with clean energy and building next-generation solar technology, we're giving ExxonMobil and other companies billions in tax breaks at a time when they're already making record profits.
