Dismantle oppression. Deepen democracy. Destroy tyranny.

The Obama administration bows down to oil companies - yet again.
Obama announced a proposed rule that would require companies to disclose chemicals used during hydraulic fracturing (also known as fracking). However, in a compromise with corporations, such as ExxonMobil and XTO Energy, companies would only have to disclose such information after the well has been drilled, not before.
The original policy would have required companies to disclose chemicals at least 30 days prior to drilling. But Obama cracked under pressure by oil industry lobbyists to loosen regulations on oil & gas drilling.
Fracking has been known to contaminate groundwater, cause tremors & earthquakes, pollute at incredible rates, cause cancer from mishandling of waste & cause other health concerns from contaminated water, such as headaches, nausea, coughing & even memory loss.

So freaking ironic. Obama’s crew just released an add against the Romney campaign, painting them as slaves to Big Oil, and  Obama as all squeaky clean and green.If we do a few minutes of homework and record checking, it’s easy to see that the Obama administration has indeed “bowed down to big oil”, as thepeoplesrecord pointed out.So, like the Obama campaign suggested in their add, I’m gonna get on “Tumblr or whatever that is”, and call their bluff. Incredible hypocrisy Class A bullshit
