Unless The Constitution specifically defines "oil spill cleanup" as a Federal responibility, we should just do nothing.
Socialists are runnin' wild these days!
String 'em up!
Louisiana taxpayers receive more federal funding per dollar of federal taxes paid compared to the average state. Per dollar of federal tax collected in 2005, Louisiana citizens received approximately $1.78 in the way of federal spending. This ranks the state 4th highest nationally and represents a rise from 1995 when Louisiana received $1.35 per dollar of taxes in federal spending (ranked 7th nationally). Neighboring states and the amount of federal spending received per dollar of federal tax collected were: Texas ($0.94), Arkansas ($1.41), and Mississippi ($2.02).

"The free market can fix all our problems." Urgh.. okay, if that's true, then why is the fourth largest corporation in the world pleading for US government assistance to clean up their mess?
Because it's not just their problem. Government helped them do it! Everybody knows we have a bought and paid for government, and yet people always leave the government out of the blame when it really counts
