Big Oil Helps Bankroll Obama Inaugural

Tuesday, January 22, 2013


Oil giant Exxon Mobil plans to donate $250,000 to help foot the bill for President Barack Obama’s second inauguration today.

During the presidential debates with Governor Mitt Romney, Obama singled out the oil company by name and blasted them as a corporate welfare recipient who profits off voters’ pain at the pump. “The oil industry gets $4 billion a year in corporate welfare,” Obama said. “Now, does anybody think that Exxon Mobil needs some extra money when they’re making money every time you go to the pump? Why wouldn’t we want to eliminate that?”

So will Obama, who previously promised to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet, return the over quarter-million dollars in donations mega oil producer Exxon Mobil has contributed?
