Tax break? Naw..

My Way News - Key Lawmakers Demand Oil Co. Tax Records: "Senate Republicans advocate sending $100 rebate checks to millions of taxpayers, and a Democrat is leading the campaign for a 60-day gasoline tax holiday.

Either way, it seems no one in Congress wants to be without a plan, however symbolic, to attack the election-year spike in gasoline prices.

A vote is possible as early as this week on the Senate GOP approach, which calls for $100 rebate checks for taxpayers to cushion the impact of higher gasoline prices. The measure seems unlikely to prevail, at least initially, since it includes a highly controversial proposal to open a portion of Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling.

Senate Republicans also favor extending a tax break that manufacturers receive for each hybrid vehicle they make, and want President Bush to suspend deliveries to the nation's strategic petroleum reserve for six months."

Awful kind of them to give our money back, but it is much much better then fineing the oil companines. Kudos to the conservatives.

The thing that is even better is the part the opens the Artic National Wildlife Refuge, or ANWR. 10.3 Billion barrels of oil, just ripe for the use of the United States.

And the caribu won't suffer a bit.
