Speaking of gas prices, apparently Republicans in Congress now think it's "unfair" that wealthy oil companies are enjoying lavish tax breaks. The rich don't "need" extra tax cuts, we're told. Well then, if they really want to go there, I can think of a much better place to start. Focusing on excessive oil company profits, of all things, in a conversation about tax justice is myopic in the extreme.
