This just landed in my inbox:
Some of my fellow Democratic senators and I have introduced legislation to strip oil companies of their subsidies, but the oil companies are using all their Washington influence to stop us. And the vote to strip oil subsidies is scheduled for TODAY at 6:15 p.m. Eastern.
But as I told them at the hearing, they’d have an easier time convincing the American people that a unicorn flew into the hearing room than that these big oil companies need taxpayer subsidies. That’s the real fairy tale.
