Nora Lewis. Navigator
Voters strongly support provisions in President Biden’s budget to close Big Oil tax loopholes and lower energy costs. Roughly three-quarters (77%) support Biden’s proposal to “close tax loopholes that benefit Big Pharma, Big Oil, and wealthy corporations,” including a majority (56%) who strongly support this proposal. Of the 14 budget provisions that Navigator asked about, this provision ranks on par with extending the insulin price cap and expanding Medicare prescription drug negotiations in eliciting the most “strong support.” Seven in ten voters (70%) also support Biden’s proposal to “lower energy costs through clean energy investments and increased funding for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program,” including 42% who strongly support this budget provision.
