    is that too partisan?

    •  but if you were fair and balanced (5+ / 0-)

      you would point out that given the size of the subsidies given,  versus the campaign contributions, they are cheap whores.  It is bad enough they sell us out, couldn't they do it for truly huge amounts of money?

      $158,870 for approximately 340,000,000 Americans, Barton gets less than .04 cents per person, the oil companies get about $4.6 billion a year or about that, giving them $13.53 a person.   Seems to me Barton should value us for at least 2 cents worth.  Presuming my math is right.
