No wonder American Businesses and Americans are so hated around the world. How much profits are sufficient? I would think 8.4 Billion would be enough.

Hmm - the same company that is sponsoring Bono's upcoming speech in Texas. He should milk some of that cash for foreign aid.

Senators to push for $100 gas rebate checks

Under proposal, most U.S. taxpayers would get one

From Dana Bash
CNN
Thursday, April 27, 2006; Posted: 2:38 p.m. EDT (18:38 GMT)





WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Most American taxpayers would get $100 rebate checks to offset the pain of higher pump prices for gasoline, under an amendment Senate Republicans hope to bring to a vote Thursday.

However, the GOP energy package may face tough sledding because it also includes a controversial proposal to open part of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska to oil exploration, which most Democrats and some moderate Republicans oppose.

"Our plan would give taxpayers a hundred dollar gas tax holiday rebate check to help ease the pain that they're feeling at the pump," Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist announced Thursday. "

Frist said the rebates would go to single taxpayers making less than $125,000 per year, and couples making less than $150,000.

"A lot of these other things we're talking about today, supply, like ANWR, have had Democrats oppose them in the past, when gas was $1.25, $1.50. Gas is now $3," said John Thune, R-South Dakota. "I would expect that there would be a lot more bipartisan support for proposals that would increase supply in this country."

"We have been trying for years to do something about supply without their help. I hope now that we'll have their help," he added.

But Democrats seemed unimpressed.

"It's designed to protect Big Oil while mistakenly believing that drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge will solve America's energy problems," Jim Manley, a spokesman for Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada, told The Associated Press.

The energy package, sponsored by Sens. Charles Grassley of Iowa, Ted Stevens of Alaska, Pete Domenici of New Mexico and Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, will be offered as an amendment to an emergency spending measure now before the Senate funding the Iraq war and hurricane relief, according to a senior GOP leadership aide.

I doubt the shareholders are complaining. If your 401K shows a healthy increase in value this year because your fund is diversified into oil, aren't you gonna keep it?

Myself, I'd like to see oil become expensive enough that ethanol becomes an economically viable alternative and we can tell OPEC to keep their oil.

agree with se7en...

why do we keep going after this stupid oil. What is wrong with wind power, water power and electric cars?! I can't believe people are so greedy and stupid to rather be pathetically rich (like what can you do with all that money anyway? it doesnt make you super human) to want profits over a better world for our children etc. This short sightedness makes me SICK!
