Today’s Action: Tell Congress to tax stock buybacks for price-gouging oil companies!

Oil companies like ExxonMobil are pulling in record profits while gas prices continue to skyrocket. In the past year alone, ExxonMobil increased profits by 53% — amounting to a whopping $90.5 billion in revenue. Instead of reinvesting those funds into increased production, cleaner technologies, or lowering gas prices for American families, they have decided to buy back $10 billion of company shares, to the delight of the ultra elite.

Prior to 1982, corporations buying back shares were subject to stock manipulation charges. Today corporations are free to line their pockets and manipulate their stock value at the expense of our communities. It’s greed in every sense of the word.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your members of Congress and demand they pass a stock buyback tax on greedy oil companies!

If oil giants like ExxonMobil want to use international crises to manipulate their company value and profit, it should absolutely not come scot-free. The American people are already being milked for all they’re worth by wealthy corporations, with inflation on essential goods nearing a 40-year high.

There is no good reason gas prices should be surging when oil companies are tripling their revenue and have the money to buy back $10 billion of their own stock. It’s simply ridiculous.
