BP/Gulf Oil Gusher

Statement by President Obama on Oil Liability, May 18, 2010

Washington,D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–May 18, 2010.

"I am disappointed that an effort to ensure that oil companies pay fully for disasters they cause has stalled in the United States Senate on a partisan basis.  This maneuver threatens to leave taxpayers, rather than the oil companies, on the hook for future disasters like the BP oil spill.  I urge the Senate Republicans to stop playing special interest politics and join in a bipartisan effort to protect taxpayers and demand accountability from the oil companies."
