Let big oil/coal pay for hurricane damage

Our government is dumping tens of billions of dollars into subsidies for hugely profitable fossil fuel corporations and unsafe nuclear power, not to mention on cleaning up these companies' spills, and wars in oil-rich countries.

Tell Congress to fund hurricane and earthquake relief by ending these subsidies.

Government welfare for oil, gas, coal, and nuclear should be eliminated entirely. If cuts are to be made to reduce the national debt, they should begin with these kinds of subsidies, rather than in useful programs that serve people.

Evidence is growing that fossil fuel industries exacerbate many so-called natural disasters. Until we can tax those industries to pay for their damage, the least we can do is end their dependence on welfare.

If debt is good, and debt problems don't scale to the national level, what's the big deal on revenue? Just print more money and sell China some more bonds.

Have you ever considered that maybe these companies would move out completely from the USA without receiving these incentives? How large would our unemployment be without these large, stable companies?
