Gulf Oil Crisis is Getting Worse, Not Better

From The Heritage Foundation:

It’s approaching 80 days and each day the oil cleanup falls farther behind.

The math is simple:  More oil comes out of the Deepwater Horizon well each day than we collect.  So after 80 days things are worse rather than better.  It’s because those in charge have failed to re-assign priorities and assemble enough resources to skim and intercept the oil before it reaches shore.

The feds and BP take turns pointing fingers at each other, but both are at fault for the slow-paced response to the original spill.  But unless the Obama Administration removes bureaucratic barriers and red tape, BP cannot do what it should.

I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power. — Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Charles Jarvis, September 28, 1820
