Gulf disaster claims process

“President Barack Obama is poised to seize the handling of oil spill damage claims from BP.”

I agree 100% that BP should not be in the position of handling the oil spill claims… but neither should the government.  It needs to be a non-biased committee… which may be difficult to find.

I do hear that Obama wants BP to pay all the oil workers who have had their jobs impacted due to the ‘suspension’ that the government put on drilling in the Gulf… That doesn’t make sense and shouldn’t hold up in a court of law.  The government impacted their income, not BP.

“Ensure BP pays for making whole all local residents and businesses hurt by the spill, by federal force, if necessary. But whether BP agrees to Obama’s demand to pay the salaries of oil workers idled by a six-month moratorium on new deep-sea oil drilling remained under discussion with the company, the administration official said.”
