BP Won't Pay for Gulf Oil Spill Research

The oil giant whines that it has forked out a lot for research already, and can't understand why it should have to pay more. Guess who gets to pick up the tab instead....

I would have rather them pay for clean-up, research (and NEVER having used Corexit that caused worse effects than the spill) than their multi-million $$$$ PR campaign that nobody bought into.

And we should be surprised why?? The US taxpayers will swallow their costs, while the Prez and Congress let them build more rigs, just as unsafe as this one was...just as unsafe as they all are.

Good comment by GGmaSheila D., she says it all. This is disgusting and frustrating for the taxpayers, once again we are screwed and will have to pay for these mistakes. Totally unacceptable and outrageous!

Sorry about the double post. It wasn't working right and did not show up, something weird here today.

So the wealthy elites running the two party sham bailout Wall Street, and they bailout GM, and they bailout BP, and they bail out their other corporate masters...and the rest of us get stuck with the bill. In case, our government hasn't noticed a vast swath of the American working class could really use a bailout of their own. Oddly enough, there doesn't ever seem to be any money for that. Next time, some snake oil salesman tries to dupe us into buying "change we can believe in," tell them that we want change that is real, progressive, and improves the lives of the majority of the people, not just the 1%.

Belief is the kiss of debt.:) Believe nothing they say, reverse it, they say no it is go..they say go it is no..wrong ?

Eliminate the shut bags and take 10 minutes a day and decide our own fates..in real time..fire the parasites betraying us every hour of every day tossing crumbs at us for our collective rations of artificial feigned solace.:) FU !
Multi tiered govt, corporate, religious fascism..GOP Ziocon Nazi loving ultra rich..bang bang you be dead one day soon we hope.
Usw psioonics to wipe them out..works..wiping out shit bags daily with a thought..join mne..be free to be at last..really..truly..free and feeding our family of mostly starved and abused man, let the rich eat fiat currency.
Stuff it down their throats then cut it for them with a dull knife slowly..:)
The pain this regime is causing us all, globally has to be put away for good..
No effort, no risk, no injuries for the greater good....no freedom. Ever. Just a herd of over worked slaves.

Well, of course they won't. It's not their problem, at least as long as they can make it somebody else's.

Go solar, for a start. We have to do it ourselves. The oil companies are not going to.

They will just increase the gas prices, and at the end we have to pay for it. :-P

Noted. They should've paid and then been banned from ever doing business in or with the U.S. ever. This makes me sick. Of course I will never buy anything with their name on it.

Shame on them. I support big oil as little as possible - wish I could go completely oil free.

Now there's a shocker for you, another too-big-to-fail giant corporation that doesn't want to do any more research into what went wrong or is still going wrong. Why would they? They'll only look worse. What do you bet that they'll soon be lobbying to stop anyone else from doing any more research?

I don't blame them. They have their own problems that are just as big.

To Rosa Caldwell:
You're joking, right?
Let me get this straight.
You sincerely, believe that a $147.4 billion corporation should not be responsible for the destruction they caused. One can only assume that you feel sorry for them, which would be rather mysterious.......or, you own stock in the company; in which case, your vote would be cancelled out, due to partiality.

You are a Teapublican, right?
That explains everything.

On second thought, why should a reasonable corporation want to spend money on research, when they can take their chances on another accident not occurring?

BP's problems are their lack of morals and humanity. Surely, they are not Christians and don't believe in a hereafter.
The people making these decisions, will all be dead in so many years, and they JUST DON'T CARE, what insues after that.
