Congress lays into oil execs over profits, investments - Apr. 1, 2008

I hate to say this, but isn't Congress being a little naive when they railed the oil men about using their tax breaks? Are we expected to believe that Congress thinks that these executives have a conscience and would give up their tax breaks just to help us peons?

Come on now!! Why would they when they have the President of the United States in their pockets....a President that threatens veto with just the mere mention of taking said tax breaks away from his buddies.

Note to Congress....the Oil Companies don't give a rats ass about anything except profits. They don't care about the consumer, they don't care about the environment (check out Stephen Simon's excuse of why they only gave $100 million towards renewable energy), and they certainly don't care about what we all think of them.
