Big, Evil Oil Companies Pay Most in Taxes

Big Companies don't pay taxes they just collect them for the gubamint. The cost of the taxation is rolled up in the prices of the goods we buy. When one adds what the gubamint charges us in tax on a gallon of gas, plus the hidden tax rolled into the cost; the Feds make a bunch of money off of oil and gas.

Oil subsidies don't pay for themselves

Big government (democrat, naturally) confiscates tax monies and, as Obama and Michelle are examples, squander it.

It's no surprise liberals love taxes. The new Democratic Senate budget calls for $1 trillion in tax increases in order to offset $1 trillion in new spending. But liberals who constantly demonize big oil are biting the hand that feeds and fulfills their big govenrment spending dreams. It turns out, big oil companies like Exxon Mobile and Chevron pay the most in taxes out of any other company. 

1. ExxonMobil
• Income tax expense: $31.05 billion
• Earnings before taxes: $78.73 billion
• Revenue: $428.38 billion
•1-year share price change: 6.56%
