ABC News’ Teddy Davis reports:
The head of the United States Chamber of Commerce said Friday that his group is not yet lobbying against legislative efforts to raise BP’s liability cap, viewing the issue as not yet "ripe."
He signaled, however, that his group would figure out a way to get the government to share in the cost of cleaning up the Gulf Coast.
“It is generally not the practice of this country to change the laws after the game,” said Tom Donohue, the president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “. . . Everybody is going to contribute to this clean up. We are all going to have to do it. We are going to have to get the money from the government and from the companies and we will figure out a way to do that.”
I have some news for you, peckerhead, we are fucking broke.
BP started this disaster by cutting corners and there is a criminal liability here because of that.
They can pay for the clean up. I could give a rats ass if it takes every god damn penny they have and have to sell every fucking piece of equipment they own and go completely out of buisiness, THEY are going to pay for this disaster, not us.
Just the fact that you opened your mouth to utter this profoundly fucked up attempt to bail out yet another giant corporation makes me want to grab you by the throat.
They broke it, they own it and you can shove your bailouts up your ass, we have had it with that shit.
