With all due respect, don’t tell us what you “would” do. You’ve been President for over three years. Tell us why you haven’t done it.

@jeffmiller: You are willfully ignorant and need to take a Civics Class. Hint: Google 112th Congress S.2204 
CONGRESS MAKES LAWS. If you’re hell bent on blamestorming, you might want to have a look at the Senators who stopped S.2204 from reaching The President’s desk. Did YOU vote for any of them?

I usually try to avoid responding to rude comments like this, but  … .
First, Obama voted to give the big oil companies tax breaks when he was a Senator.  
Second, if you are going to give Obama a pass for failing to get rid of them because “CONGRESS MAKES LAWS,” why is Obama promising to end these tax breaks?  Presumably he thinks he has some power to do something, even if you don’t think he has this power.  
Third, his party controlled Congress early in his term and he didn’t end these tax breaks.  
All that said, I’m not interested in getting into further argument with someone who accuses me of willful ignorance.  There are plenty of very bright, very polite Obama supporters on Tumblr that I can engage with.
