BIG OIL PAID and GOT PAID

Big Oil spent over $150 million in 2009 alone trying to destroy our chance at a clean energy future. And, as the 2010 elections approach, Big Oil and Dirty Coal are prepared to target lawmakers who support clean energy and kick them out of Congress

The Biggest Spenders and Takers..THE BRIBE MACHINE


In 2005 ALONE, the top ten oil companies spent a whopping $79,173,092 lobbying Congress and the Bush administration.


The energy companies that spend the most on lobbying the federal government also tend to be those that give the most to politicians for their campaigns. Since 2001, Exxon Mobil, Marathon Oil, Shell Oil, Chevron and BP America—many of which provided guidance to Cheney's task force—have spent the most among energy companies on lobbying. Exxon Mobil and Chevron, in addition to El Paso Corp and Koch Industries, have been among the most generous campaign contributors within the industry during Bush's time in office. The American Petroleum Institute, which represents the oil industry in Washington, declined to comment for this story, and a spokesman from the national trade group the Independent Petroleum Association of America was unavailable for comment.


Big oil made over $900 billion during Bush years, WOW...

May 27, 2009 ... For example, ExxonMobil spent $190 million on advertising in 2007, ..... K L Reddington says: May 28, 2009 at 10:31 am. Big oil. ..

Even in 2012 same monkey Business. Hedge Funds and
Speculation casino style sting up gas prices 40% for Hedge Fund Billionaires so those same Billionaires can donate to super pacs. See how this rigged game works.
Consumers pay extra 40% so Speculators and Politicians get paid. It's a racquet
