Republicans side with BP…Surprised????
It seems as if we may never get to the bottom of who is responsible for the oil spill that occurred a few months ago in the gulf. President Obama did in fact create a commission that is responsible for gathering information from BP, Transocean, and Halliburton so that they can come to a conclusion of who is to blame.
The issue is that Republicans(led by Jim DeMint) are blocking the commission from having power to subpoena these companies, and make them testify under oath. One can only wonder what these companies have to hide. If everything is kosher, then you would think that nobody would have a problem testifying under oath. Just when I thought that we would actually be making progress in finding the culprit of this disaster, the Republicans swoop in and save their best friend..BIG BUSINESS. Below is a clip of the always idiotic Jim DeMint objecting to giving subpoena power to the commission. I am at least thankful for Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Robert Menendez(D-NJ) calling out DeMint and Republicans for their shameless stance on this issue. Whose in bed with big business again???
