Congressman Admits When It Comes To Big Oil He Was For It Before He Was Against Government “Picking Winners and Losers”


LANSING – CNN called Congressman Pete Hoekstra out for the hypocrisy of showing up for the groundbreaking last Thursday of an advanced automotive battery plant in Holland, Michigan after voting against funding for it.  That plant will create more than 400 permanent jobs for Michigan workers.  Now a new Progress Michigan video has Hoekstra admitting during an interview that he supported more than $18 billion in tax breaks for Big Oil that he calls the kind of “government support for winners and losers” that he criticized President Obama for when it came to funding the Michigan jobs-creating factory.
