Sen. Maj. Ldr Harry Reid is calling for an end to oil tax breaks,  on Monday. While the American public wants an end to the billions of dollars in Big Oil handouts, the latest House Republican budget plan delivers massive tax breaks to the richest 1% and preserves the huge giveaways to the oil industry.  Sixty-seven percent of Americans support action to combat global climate change, yet 63 percent of Americans—more than 202 million people—are represented by a member of Congress who questions or denies the science behind human-caused climate change, according to new research. Despite the fact that 2015 was the hottest year on record with 10 out of its 12 months breaking records, Congress hasn’t warmed to the science behind climate change. 59% of House GOP & 70% of Senate GOP are climate deniers =  182 climate deniers in Congress:144 Representatives and 38 Senators.
