$1.5 Billion Giveaway Secretly Slipped into Energy Bill, Waxman Says
By Rep. Henry Waxman
YubaNet.com

Wednesday 27 July 2005

In a letter to Speaker Hastert, Rep. Waxman writes that after the energy legislation was closed to further amendment in the recently concluded conference, a $1.5 billion provision benefiting oil and gas companies, Halliburton, and Sugar Land, Texas, was mysteriously inserted in the text.

The text of the letter is below:

The Honorable J. Dennis Hastert
Speaker
US House of Representatives
H232 Capitol
Washington, DC 20515-6501

Dear Mr. Speaker:

I am writing to draw to your attention a provision in the Energy Conference Report that raises serious procedural and substantive concerns. At its essence, this provision is a $1.5 billion giveaway to the oil industry, Halliburton, and Sugar Land, Texas. The provision was inserted into the energy legislation after the conference was closed, so members of the conference committee had no opportunity to consider or reject this measure. Before the final energy legislation is brought to the House floor, this provision should be deleted.

I agree with you, Pollyannuh. Our Congress is full of bastards. Thatīs about all I can come up with. Words fail me when I consider that they continue to sink to lower depths all the time. Is there nothing too underhanded for them?

"What we have here is a printing press, and over here is the paper, and thereīs some of that fancy ink. Now people, what we have here is an economic crisis of monstrous proportions, and after much deliberation by our crack staff of economists, all with MBAs I might add, we have come to the conclusion that we need to print more money. Now yīall will be payed overtime, just as soon as the ink dries on them there bills. Now letīs get to work people, and show them rooskies what we are made of."

No, Sugar Land deserves a quake! Actually, a sink hole would be just fine. Sugar Land could sink deep into the earth (as long as it happens while Tom Delay is there).

Thatīs a shocking story. Never heard of any kind of government/corporate graft like that before. The petro lords get to ream and cream the taxpayer? Pretty shocking alright.

Thanks, everyone.

Itīs so important for people to read and understand what goes on with these bills. The add-ons are what cripples us.

Sadly, most times we donīt learn about these things until AFTER the vote.

But, we can still call our congresscritters and let them know weīre watching and will vote accordingly in the next election.

Another good idea is to keep a running list of things that your congresscritter voted for or against, and use the list when you write to him/her. They really HATE to be reminded how many times they voted against their constituency.

They hate it do they? Poor widdle fings, askeered they might not get re-elected. Maybe they should try representing instead of swilling or kneeling.

Anyways, I couldnīt find what I thought was a 20 billion break, what I found was an 80 billion break but that was published by Sierra Club so probably not a good thing to link. lol.

This is how Tom Delay funnels government money back into his campaign coffers. Watch how much consortium members donate to his campaign in the coming years (not to mention Republicans all over the country). This is the scratching backs game.

Most EXCELLENT

I work for a software company, that works for an exploration company that works for an Oil company , that works for a refinery, that drills for that deep water oil. We do the ahemmīīī "software"

We got some new boats that will drill in 10,000 feet of water and it costs LOTS for the software to run it all.

yee haa.

Polly, I saw this too a couple of hours ago. Waxman will not take this lying down nor others. I think that this will be a real showdown. The GAO will become involved, and as the Rovegate thing moves to major investigation status, this will come down, too.

It was illegal what was done so there should be someway to undo it. Has the Senate started meeting on this yet?
