Of course it's not. I tried to tell people on another thread that this would be the case. The moratorium is going to destroy many Louisiana families and businesses....AND OBAMA DOES NOT CARE!!!!

Why should BP be responsible for Obama's stupid #$%@&%$ idea.

Well let's just hope as the cost come in the needs will be met, either by BP or government. If the government covers these costs then BP should have to reimburse.

Always it comes to this. The individuals and smaller businesses pay for the mistakes of the goverment and the large greedy corporations. The government's going to move on to other matters after this leaving the locals to suffer. Raise a voice against this injustice America. If this is allowed to happen once then when other parts of the country are affected by another ecological disaster then the corporations will have a precedent for not paying the ones who are directly affected. We stand with you.

You can't simply blame corporations, who absolutely are at fault, but our elected officials HAVE to be held accountable for allowing this to happen. The necessary rules were in place but corruption allowed this accident to happen. Corporations are there to make a profit. It is their job to do it as economically as possible. That is not to say that it is always right, but it is a fact. Our elected officials are responsible to see to it that all regulations are being followed. So IMHO they are equally to blame.
