Today's vote is all about values. Republicans will have a chance to show the American people whose side they're on. They can continue to defend oil company executives, and insist we keep handing them hard-earned taxpayer dollars even as they rake in billions in profits. Or Republicans can stop defending oil companies, and focus on a challenge that matters to the American people: cutting the deficit. If Republicans would stop defending oil companies and join with Democrats, we could cut our deficit by more than $20 billion today.
Democrats believe that this is the kind of wasteful spending that needs to stop.
