I know - because I asked them.
The CEOs of the six largest oil and gas companies came in to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee last month.
So I asked them, under oath: Do you need these tax breaks? And they said: No. Each one agreed. No. They don't need them.
I have a simple, common sense proposal. Let's repeal them. Let's do it immediately. Let's not give them billions in tax breaks that they clearly don't need. It is a waste of taxpayers' money.
This is a nonpartisan, no-brainer decision. We have the word of the oil companies themselves - they don't need them.
