President Calls for Cutting Big Oil Subsidies

Speaking in New Hampshire yesterday, President Obama called on Congress – to eliminate the oil industry giveaway right away. I want them to vote on this in the next few weeks. Right now the Federal government is subsidizing big oil to the tune of 4-billion dollars a year. The President was speaking to students and others at Nashua Community College in Nashua, New Hampshire.

The President made this challenge, – let’s put every single member of Congress on record: You can stand with the oil companies, or you can stand up for the American people. You can keep subsidizing a fossil fuel that’s been getting taxpayer dollars for a century, or you can place your bets on a clean-energy future.

Most of the President’s speech focused on energy. He eluded to clean energy when he said – we've got to have an all-of-the-above strategy that develops every single source of American energy. is dedicated to serving the agricultural industry in the Carolinas and Virginia with the latest ag news, exclusive regional weather station readings, and key crop market information.
