The political party formerly known as the Republican Party. The oil companies continually bribe the Republicans to prevent taxation of record profits, even though oil companies earn a billion dollars every 15 minutes, the republicans continue to give them tax breaks.
On June 10, 2008, the Republicans in Congress shot down the Democratic proposal to tax the oil companies. Henceforth, the Republicans became the Exxonpublicans.
