Ask yourself this question: "Do you think taxing, and taxing and taxing American companies and the Americans that work for American companies and trashing the stock of companies that many many Americans own pieces of in their 401(k)s for retirement is the needed thing to do to America & its citizens?"
Oh, and by the way, you can tell who the PRESS is biased towards by reading that headline - look at the words they use: "saved", "big oil", "dodged", "...prices that have the nation fuming". I could have EASILY written a headline that was less biased that read something like this: "Statesman Vote Down Abhorrent Additional Taxes on Companies that are Successful".
Also, BTW, who is it that is actually HURTING the American citizens?? Is it business that hires & pays citizens? Is it business that ALREADY pays BILLIONS of dollars in taxes to the government??? Or is it the DEMOCRATIC Congress that constantly votes DOWN solutions to the energy crunch? Democratic Congress votes NO to drilling in ANWR, NO to drilling off shore, NO to drilling ON shore, NO to more refinery capacity, NO to nuclear energy, etc. ON and ON and ON, again. THEY are the one's who are hurting Americans!
