A sample of congressional legislation introduced this week:
H.R. 2877 would cut taxes on fossil fuel pipelines.
H.R. 2885 would exempt investments from income tax.
S. 1401 would dramatically increase the coastal areas in which offshore drilling for crude oil can take place.
S. 1402 would eliminate taxes for people who get their money by inheriting from millionaires and billionaires, rather than working.
Political power in the United States of America is thick, and rich, and oily.
