Santelli: Why Doesn't Obama Go After Apple's Profits?

Kliphnote: This so called "tax breaks" are the same any company gets of doing business. That is writing off cost of doing business, like any company does.
Taking the "tax breaks" away from a oil company will increase gas prices.

Obama urges Congress to end oil tax breaks, refocus on alternative energy

Published March 29, 2012
President Obama pressed Congress on Thursday to end $4 billion in tax subsidies to U.S. oil companies, saying he’s not concerned about them during record-high gas prices and doubling down on his vow to focus on alternative energy.
“I’m not worried about oil companies,” the president said in a Rose Garden speech. “Wind and solar power … energy-efficient cars. That’s the future.”
However, a Senate vote on repealing the tax breaks failed about 30 minutes later.
Congressional Republicans say ending the tax breaks will lead to higher fuel prices, raising costs on oil companies and affecting their spending on exploration.
Obama couldn't end the subsidies when Democrats controlled both chambers of Congress, before Republicans last year recaptured control of the House.
“Members of Congress have a choice to make,” Obama said Thursday. “They can stand with big oil or they can stand with the American people.
