Question #2 for Richard Pombo
One of the biggest problems with the current Congress is that legislation appears to be for sale. Big oil companies seem to be getting pretty good ROI (Return on Investment) for their contributions. And remember, a part of every contribution, goes into Pombo's pocket.
Just a few weeks ago, as Californians were paying over $3.00 a gallon for gas, you flew to Houston for a fundraiser with oil industry executives. The oil companies that have contributed over $200,000 to your campaign are making billions of dollars in profits, yet, you voted to give millions of dollars in tax breaks to those same companies and let them off the hook for polluting California. Why should voters not believe that you are in the pocket of BIG OIL?
Just whose interests, Mr. Pombo, are you looking out for?
