Trump signed his first meaningful bill. Who benfited?

Sean Spicer had to cut yesterday's presser short to attend a bill signing. This is that bill signing.

And it's remarkable, because here is Congress actually passing legislation and a so-called President signing it. The Republican Congress hardly ever did that with President Obama.

This one is special. Donald Trump says we're bringing back jobs! In the plant! And in the factory! We're bringing back energy jobs, yay!

And it would be great if the bill he signed did that, but it doesn't.

This bill, House Joint Resolution 17, erases a rule that was supposed to go into effect in 2018. This bill benefits oil companies and Vladimir Putin.

That rule said that oil and natural gas and other energy companies have to disclose when they make a payment to a foreign government. Taxes, fees, whatever, if an American company pays a foreign government money, they have to report that.

Not anymore they don't.

So instead of helping coal miners, auto workers, oil workers... he's helping... gas and oil companies and Vladimir Putin?

Jaysus! 

Maybe it somehow magically creates jobs by making all the information available to Moscow?

This is BS. You are talking about resolution 41. Not 17. And what the truth is:
The legislation, House Joint Resolution 41, eliminated a regulation issued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission last June that would have forced extractive industries to report payments they make to governments overseas for access to natural resources.
Get it, what they pay to be able to drill for oil and gas. Maybe it would be nicer if Obama let us drill and mine here, right Greg?
Looks like that crooks and liars website got you again Greg.

Good for you if you can. You will not be breaking the law. If it is a benefit to you, go for it.

Of what benefit is the regulation, enacted without congressional approval, to anyone?

Excuse me?

Quote:

Congress is preparing this week to start the process of rolling back multiple regulations, one of which is a bipartisan rule that requires extractive industry corporations, like oil, gas and mining companies to disclose payments they make to foreign governments for access to natural resources.

The rule, the Cardin-Lugar Amendment, became law in 2010 as Section 1504 of the Dodd-Frank Act. After delays by court challenges by some in the oil and gas industry, the Securities and Exchange Commission implemented the rule, saying that all foreign and domestic companies listed on US stock exchanges and involved in oil, gas and mineral resource extraction must publish payments they make to foreign countries in which they operate.

Harry, if you don't know what the Hell you're talking about, at least try not to show everyone you don't know what you're talking about...

I suggest you post the correct information from the start.

I don't pretend to know all.

You didn't answer my question.
