Has the “National Taxpayers Union” Jumped the Shark?

The National Taxpayers Union, which is a lobbying group and neither a union nor national has been spending $1.25 million in add buys to convince everybody that President Obama is trying to raise taxes on oil companies and put our energy future at risk.

Their beef is the calling for an end to the dual capacity credit, which allows American energy companies to deduct a portion of foreign taxes they pay from their U.S. tax bills, and to the firms’ ability to take a domestic manufacturing deduction allowed under Section 199 of the Tax Code.

All this while the American  oil energy companies have made record profits and President Obama has dealt with Osama bin Ladan.

Not really smart timing if you ask me.

    Interested to hear what Pres Obama will say about immigration reform. He’s speaking in Texas on it in a few, per NPR.

    Cheers
