64. Who will do any better?
I agree that this administration has allowed BP to do too much (and too little), although I do not have all the answers as to what the government is capable of doing. The oil companies are the ones who have all the oil technology and I don't think many are willing to increase taxes to pay for the feds to have a staff of drilling experts sitting around, just in case. So, who will we vote for when it comes time? Do you think that Republicans will have a candidate who will be pro people???
