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.
