Romney and the Koch brothers: Fighting for big oil

Posted by

 

As president, Barack Obama is working to decrease our dependence on foreign oil and increase renewable energy; last year, our reliance on foreign oil was at its lowest point in 16 years. And at a time when big oil companies are raking in record profits, the President is fighting to end the $4 billion in unnecessary taxpayer subsidies.

Mitt Romney has a different plan. He's fighting to protect his big oil friends, and he's gained some formidable teammates who don't want to let their subsidies go. Romney is speaking to the Koch Brothers funded Americans for Prosperity in Michigan today—the same Koch Brothers who have pledged millions of dollars to defeat President Obama. 

Let everyone you know that Romney and the Koch brothers are fighting for big oil instead of what's best for the middle class. Watch and share our newest video.
