BP/Gulf Oil Gusher

Statement by White House Press Secretary on Congressman Joe Barton’s Apology to BP

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–June 17, 2010.

“What is shameful is that Joe Barton seems to have more concern for big corporations that caused this disaster than the fishermen, small business owners and communities whose lives have been devastated by the destruction.  Congressman Barton may think that a fund to compensate these Americans is a ‘tragedy’, but most Americans know that the real tragedy is what the men and women of the Gulf Coast are going through right now.  Members from both parties should repudiate his comments.”
