Don’t pick on oil companies

“Don’t pick on oil companies,” Monterey Herald – April 9, 2022

Blaming oil company CEOs for the price increases they don’t really control is one of those theatrical performances Democrats love. Remember Joe Biden declared war on the fossil fuel industry in 2019!  It would be better to point out that pharmaceuticals, real estate (rents/prices) and especially big tech have far out profiteered over the past 10 years. However, you don’t see the Democrats pointing fingers at them. It’s just recently that oil companies have seen things turn their way. Please, don’t be fooled when some Democrat politician picks on oil companies with new taxes, rather than their friends in Big Tech, pharmaceuticals and real estate.
