TAX WHAT YOU DON'T WANT:

Senate Democrats Target Tax Breaks for Big Oil (TENNILLE TRACY, 5/10/11, WSJ)

The bill would modify a foreign-tax provision that allows the companies to receive a tax credit for every dollar of taxes they pay to foreign governments. The measure also would repeal a popular tax deduction known as the 199 deduction, which allows companies to deduct a certain percentage of their income.
