As Congress begins its annual budget process, oil and natural-gas production continues to increase across the United States, giving us a chance to reinvigorate our economy while finally reversing our dependency on sources of energy from unstable regions of the world. Unfortunately, the president’s 2014 budget proposes to reverse this progress by eliminating critical energy tax provisions that stimulate investment in safe domestic-energy production.

"These provisions and deductions, which are available to nearly every American industry, enable continued investment in U.S. energy exploration and production. Independent energy producers — companies with an average of 12 employees, which drill nearly 95 percent of the nation’s oil and gas wells — are at the heart of America’s great energy revival. The current provisions in the tax code that promote continued American energy production are key to the success of these small operators."

Key words: Independents, drill, 95%, small operators.

Obviously this is just too much for some to understand.

President Obama’s Budget Is Wrong On Oil and Natural Gas, Again! Would you expect anything less? Sneaker666 has been misguided on many things he has done and continues to do so at the expense of the US taxpayer. Limited job growth, limited national economic improvement, an 'in the crapper' economy, severe lack of jobs, overspending on renewable energy with a lack of return for that investment and a dog and pony show administration.
Sneeker666 is bad for the US and it's getting worse and worse with each passing day!
He's a smooth talker and most people can't see through his smoke and mirrors!
Can't wait for Sneeker666 to fade away like it was an eight year nightmare!
The sooner, the better!
Drive vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

The energy companies and their drilling divisions have more than enough money and DO NOT AND SHOULD NOT GET TAXPAYERS MONEY! They only want to drill so they can export it anyway and keep American consumers paying high prices! They do not deserve or need federal money, just republican noise to keep their campaign money from energy companies flowing!
