“I think the people responsible in the oil spill–BP and the federal government–should take full responsibility for what’s happening there.” House Minority Leader John Boehner stated following comments last Friday by Us Chamber of Commerce CEO Tom Donohue who said he opposes efforts to stick BP, A member of the Chamber, with the bill. “It is generally not the practive of this country to change the laws after the game,” he said.

Fine once there is nothing left of BP or its investors resources to provide to clean up their mess then the federal government should step in. Don’t tell me about the retirement funds. It is clear that the Republican\Conservative idea of privatized retirement investment accounts don’t work and we should go back to pension plans. It is like the Boehner didn’t learn anything from the bank bail out and now excepts the tax payers to bail out BP. Because the Republican ideals of small government and free market lead to business making bad choices to make bigger profits.
