If Obama Wants To End Oil Subsidies, Why Then Is Brazil Getting $2 Billion Dollars In Oil Subsidies?
4/26/2011 | Laissez-Faire Capitalist

Posted on 04/26/2011 10:45:40 AM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist

Obama has said that $4 billion dollars in subsidies going to U.S. oil companies must come to an end.

Why then is a Brazilian oil company getting $2 billion dollars in what is effectively a subsidy for them to drill in offshore waters?

Why are they getting taxpayer dollars and the jobs that we should get? Why are they getting the money to do the same thing that we can do?

I don’t know, maybe Soros doesn’t have any interest in US oil companies.

Because the American people are the enemy, and Brazil is run by commies. Get it?

He wants to spread the wealth around ask Joe the Plumber

Why did he give them a Gulf Permit in the Gulf where he has denied US Companies with US widows and orpans as stockholders than a fellow Marxist friend in Brazil?

U.S. issues second post-spill drill permit in Gulf Petrobras gets permit for U.S. deep waters WASHINGTON, March 18 (UPI) -- Washington has given Petrobras America Inc. permission to start oil and gas production in the Gulf of Mexico, a regulator said. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement gave Petrobras approval to use a floating production storage offloading facility at its Cascade-Chinook project in the Gulf of Mexico.

Exactly. He’s against AMERICANS making money. His buddy Hugo? Well, socialists have to stick together. Sure Obama will have a post-presidency job on some “board” there as well as all the green companies he’s throwing money to.

Our number one export right now in America is jobs.

“It would be interesting to see him explain why.

It would be even more interesting for someone to ASK him why, under oath.

The really bad thing here is that Obama paid Brazil 2 billion dollars for a kick-ass vacation for his family and had to call it short because Hillary started a war with one of his best friends...

It would be racist not to underwrite Brazilian jobs just as it would be racist to allow oil jobs in America.

Why?..... So we can be Brazils first customer...just as Bo said...he’ll spread our wealth around....which for some reason he cannot admit we are broke!

EPA is his tool to Shut us down...drill there...and force us to send our revenues south....”spreading the wealth around”. He’s doing exactly what he said he would do so we should not be surprised. More than obvious Obama not only cares not for this nation but his intentions are to weaken us as much as is wihtin his power to do so.... in every respect.

[ If Obama Wants To End Oil Subsidies, Why Then Is Brazil Getting $2 Billion Dollars In Oil Subsidies? ]

Its called Cloward-Piven tactics.. destroy the current "system" and rebuild it in a totalitarian way..

Surely you don't think Obama IS NOT TRYING to destroy the United States?..

He actually said it.. and Soros is implementing it with help from The Executive and Legislative and even the Judicial branchs of government.. PLUS the main stream media and the Academics.. and probably the NSA, FBI and CIA...

OH!.. dont forget the UNIONS... YES!!!... all of them..

Even Fox won’t ask this question (but I bet Trump would). The answer we all know is that Soro$ doesn’t have any money in US oil companies.

Well for him to explain it, someone in the media will need to ask him; unfortunately, that will not happen!

I just want to know one thing. Why do we have a second amendment if we are afraid to form militias to defend our country from the seditious traitors in the MSM and DNC?

Great Question.

Rush had a gem yesterday himself

“If Oil companies wanted to drive up the cost of oil they wouldn’t be seeking new permits to drill for oil.”
