Letter: Drilling isn’t the answer to our troubles

The Republicans don’t want to  abolish the tax breaks for the oil companies. They want to drill for oil in our coastal areas. 

What has to be done is not to drill for oil in our coastal areas, but to drill some sense into the Republicans who believe that “Drill, Baby, Drill” is the solution.

More tax breaks for the oil company’s the more greasy money for the “Drill, Baby, Drill” advocates.

Why not abolish the oil firms’ tax breaks? They have gouged the consumers’ pocketbooks long enough. They are entitled to their profits, but not by gouging the American people.

The oil companies have gotten away with over-pricing gasoline for too long. “Turn around is fair play.” They make enough profit just by their inflated gasoline prices without having their tax breaks.

Put a stop to the greasy profits.
