Oil and Gas Companies: Key Contributors to US Economic Engine

August 20, 2012

NTUs’s vice president Pete Sepp recently had an editorial piece published in US News illustrating the significant contributions of oil and gas companies to the US economy. Sepp demonstrates the importance of reducing the tangle of costly regulatory and tax burdens these (and other) industries face in order for our economy as a whole to continue reaping the rewards of their crucial job-creating activity.

I really get a kick out of this TOTALLY false myth that the 1%ers should not be stifled since they are the 'JOB-CREATERS'. If that were true, where are these jobs?? Under Bush, these so-called 'JOB-CREATORS' just accumulated their wealth and did not use it to create jobs or benefit workers!! Why should we benefit these 'ANTI-AMERICANS' who simply hoard their money and, like Romney, hide it in the Cayman Islands and other countries outside the U.S.??????
