Big Oil Gets Billions in Tax Breaks, Buys More Politicians
"The world's largest oil companies — ExxonMobil, Shell, Chevron, BP, and ConocoPhillips — will begin to announce their third-quarter profits
for 2012. In the first half of 2012, these companies — all ranked in the top 10 of Fortune 500 Global — earned over $60 billion.
The oil industry reinvests tens of millions of these dollars for political purposes, including nearly all political contributions to Republicans,
lobbying, and campaign ads.
Through its enormous spending, these five and other Big Oil companies have fought to maintain $4 billion of their annual subsidies, while seeking to
undermine clean energy investments."* Cenk Uygur breaks down this ridiculous perversion of the free market and looks into how oil companies are
getting their tax breaks and spending their money.
Another case of buying the government, the free market is a myth, this is what's wrong with capitalism, the facts in the video make me sick, oil
companies destroy our planet and charge us for the pleasure.
Here's a comment on youtube, that is spot on.

Apparently, prostitution is illegal unless you are a politician.
