Take Action Today! End Energy Subsidies
The Senate is currently considering amendments to a transportation bill that would further inject flawed government planning into America’s energy markets.
If history has shown us anything, it’s that when government tries to pick favored energy sources and prop them up we’re all left to suffer. Just look at ethanol, which for decades has gotten favored treatment with special tax breaks, consumption mandates and protectionist tariffs. All we have to show for it is higher food prices and no real change in our energy supplies.
Now Congress is considering doing the exact same thing with natural gas. President Obama is pushing hard to get special tax breaks added to our already broken tax code that would try to manipulate the market into producing more natural-gas-powered vehicles. There’s nothing wrong with natural gas as a vehicle fuel source, but consumers should make that choice not government.
