Vote in House seeks to erase oil windfall

Speaking of oil subsidies, as I was yesterday, here are some Republicans finding the courage to cross the aisle in a vote for common sense. It's reported in the New York Times. Significantly,
Eighty-five Republicans, already under fire from voters about gasoline prices, sided with Democrats in voting to attach the provision to the Interior Department's annual spending bill. The measure would require adoption by the Senate, which is less reflexively supportive of the energy industry than the House.
