Buddy Roemer opposes Big Oil subsidies (Video)

Buddy Roemer voiced his opposition to subsidies for Big Oil at the Granite State Patriots Liberty PAC Presidential Debate, held on November 10, 2011 in Hampton, NH. The former Louisiana Governor and 2012 Republican presidential candidate also implied that he would eliminate the Department of Energy if elected:

I know how to work with people and cut this budget.
Subsidies of all kinds: housing, agriculture, ethanol.
We give subsidies to Exxon and Big Oil.
Is that a disgrace?
I mean, the price of oil is $98 a barrel and we’re giving biggest corporations in America subsidies.
I would take every program – the Department of Energy’s gone.
