Bush Rejects Oil Profit Tax Proposal

April 28, 2006

WASHINGTON - President Bush today criticized calls in Congress for a tax on oil company windfall profits. Instead, Bush said, the industry should reinvest its windfall profits to find and produce more energy, the AP reported. Speaking to a group of reporters, Bush said “the temptation in Washington is to tax everything." Earlier this week, Bush unveiled a four-prong approach to dealing with higher gasoline prices: investigate to ensure oil companies are not unfairly manipulating prices to inflate profits, offer tax credits to Americans who buy hybrid and other fuel-efficient vehicles, bolster domestic supplies by deferring deposits to the nation’s strategic petroleum reserves until the summer, and invest in alternative fuels.
