New Poll: Americans Oppose Unfair Taxes 3 to 1, Want Domestic Production

Posted July 30, 2010 | folder icon Print this page

A new survey released today by the American Energy Alliance (AEA) found that 77 percent of registered voters oppose efforts in Congress to tax American companies twice on income earned abroad. The poll also found that 3 out of 4 Americans agree that our energy companies should be allowed to continue offshore exploration for energy and, separately, that we should increase U.S. oil production.

AEA recently commissioned a study that showed 12,000 jobs would be lost and $2.8 billion in economic activity with it, because of the Administration’s six-month moratorium in the Gulf.

The survey also found that Americans overwhelming oppose new regulations on the energy industry and, instead, support efforts to better enforce existing laws (16%-75%).
