It's not easy to find a way to disagree with jpete and samhill at the same time, but I'll give it a try.
jpete, when you say "you and I paid for them to drill it", it seems like you are arguing against taxes that are based on profits rather than gross revenues. Can't basically any industry deduct its reasonable and actual expenses before it pays tax? No doubt accounting rules and practices may affect the year when the expenses can be taken, but that's "you can pay me now, or you can pay me later", not "I'm paying for what you're doing".
samhill, I don't see why the capping of wells is a bad thing. Maybe if they were all under common control, but I don't think that's the case. AFAIK the decisions to drill those wells were made years ago, when it may have been expected that gas prices would be higher than they have turned out to be. AFAIK the new wells have comparatively short useful lives, and the owner needs to decide whether it's more rational to produce vs. hold the "inventory" if the well comes on-line when market prices are unexpectedly low. To me, it's good news for consumers and the economy as a whole - NG is really cheap, and if it goes up too much there is a bunch of installed production capacity ready to come on-line. All else equal, it seems like this should help to stabilize NG prices.
