Soak the Rich: ConocoPhillips

Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and President Obama know that filling the $1.62 trillion U.S. budget deficit for Fiscal 2011 means forcing big corporations to pay their fair share. As a white-guilt-ridden private industry lackey, the least I can do is help with the calculations!

President Obama may be hedging on the EPA’s righteous destruction of American polluters, but that doesn’t mean dirty corporations are off the hook. Sure, we’ve already soaked Exxon and Chevron, but the ill-gotten gains of a few more polluting fat-cats will cover the nation’s budget deficit!

Now Soaking: ConocoPhillips

None of ConocoPhillips’s 29,900 employees will lose their jobs if Sherrod Brown and Barack Obama work their not-at-all-socialist magic. The only funds & individuals holding ConocoPhillips’s 1.37 billion outstanding shares of stock who suffer will be the ones who deserve to.

Don’t worry: this punitive tax policy won’t increase the cost of travel, heating, shipping, or plastics!

We, The People who support Sherrod Brown’s fiscal policies, hold these leftist conceits to be self-evident.
