Alaska Lawmaker Tells Exxon Valdez Spill Not Its Fault As State Considers Giving Oil Industry Huge Tax Cut

Lingering Exxon Valdez oil.
Alaska is set to give oil companies, including ExxonMobil, a massive tax cut. The bill, which passed the Senate 11-9 and is endorsed by Republican Gov. Sean Parnell, is being debated by the House of Representatives.
The plan raises the base tax rate that companies pay no matter the price of oil, and also gives them a $5 credit for every barrel they produce. The plan would cost the state anywhere from $3 billion to $9.5 billion over the next six years.
As if that weren’t enough, Republicans in the state House want to make the tax cut even larger. And as they debated doing so, Rep. Kurt Olson (R) told a company representative that Exxon shouldn’t be blamed for the second-worst oil spill in U.S. history, the Exxon Valdez spill in 1989:
Your company has been tied to the history of Alaska probably for an event that had more to do with the name of a vessel than something you may have been directly responsible for,” Olson said, who went on to praise the company for its reliability.
To that, the Exxon representative responded, “Wow,” and proceeded to apologize for the spill, which dumped more than 11 million gallons of crude oil into the Alaska Prince William Sound, contaminating 1,300 miles of shoreline. More than 20 years later, there is still evidence of the damage as Exxon draws out litigation.
Alaska currently taxes oil under a progressive system that increases taxes when oil prices are high. That system, a 350 percent tax increase that helped the state rack up an extra $17 billion, was signed into law by former Republican Gov. Sarah Palin.

Georgia Republican, Sue Everhart, warns same-sex marriage “all about a free ride”

Republicans railing against the constitutionality of same-sex marriage took another unexpected turn this weekend.
Sue Everhart, the chairwoman of the Georgia GOP, suggested that allowing same-sex couples to marry would open a floodgate of fraud.
In an interview with The Marietta Daily Journal, Everhart first spouted the usual argument that being gay is “not natural.”
“Lord, I’m going to get in trouble over this, but it is not natural for two women or two men to be married. If it was natural, they would have the equipment to have a sexual relationship.”
If that wasn’t enough, Everhart goes on to warn against the abuse that she says would be sure to follow:
“You may be as straight as an arrow, and you may have a friend that is as straight as an arrow. Say you had a great job with the government where you had this wonderful health plan. I mean, what would prohibit you from saying that you’re gay, and y’all get married and still live as separate, but you get all the benefits? I just see so much abuse in this it’s unreal. I believe a husband and a wife should be a man and a woman, the benefits should be for a man and a woman. There is no way that this is about equality. To me, it’s all about a free ride.”
In other words, no to same-sex marriage because “straight as an arrow” heterosexual singles wouldn’t be able to resist all the perks of coupledom and pretend to be gay in order to get married and benefit. In that case why not abandon marriage all together? I mean what about the men and women who marry for money? Aren’t those heterosexuals just looking for a free ridetoo?
Well, Everhart she seems to have (maybe inadvertently) suggested just that in response to a question on parenting and gay marriage.
“[But] if I had a next door neighbor who was in a gay relationship, I could be just as friendly to them as I could be to you and your wife or anybody else. I’m not saying that we ostracize them or anything like that. I’m just saying I’m against marriage because once you get the gay marriage you get everything else.”
