Two of the largest oil companies reported their 4th quarter earnings last week. Exxon made almost 11 billion in the 4th quarter. Chevron made almost 7 billion. That profit for ONE quarter. This week they are starting to hear it from congress and big oil's comment is "Big pharma has bigger profit margins than we do." Are you kidding me? The Bush administration only comment is we are addicted to oil. Nice. Folks, If you want the govt off our backs, put a federal tax on pharma. They would back off in a hurry.
