Earlier this year McIntyre co-sponsored a bill to end drilling subsidies and rebate the savings to American taxpayers. So you or I might have collected a few dollars as a tax credit, while it was estimated that 60,000 oilfield workers and associated support personnel would be lain off along the Gulf Coast. Oil companies weren't going to drill the nightmare wells up in the bayous when there were easier prospects in Africa and Asia....with African and Asian drilling crews.
I voted for McIntyre every time he's run, but not this year. My money and vote are going to David Rouzer.
That was one really stupid decision, Mike!
