(AP) BP has decided to reduce payments to tens of thousands of people whose claim files are incomplete, the secretary of Louisiana's Department of Children and Family Services said.
"This action is irresponsible and in complete contrast to BP's repeated promise that they will 'make things right,'" the secretary, Kristy Nichols, wrote in a letter sent Friday to federal oil spill claims administrator Kenneth Feinberg.
It was not immediately clear how severe the payment cuts would be. BP did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Nichols said her department discovered the change after reviewing BP's Thursday claims summary, which showed a significant cut in daily payments.
Well there ya have it. BP feels that it can trump the deck. It can kill children and destroy another country's economic and ecologic systems and it believes that that country and it's people are invaluable enough to llive upto it's promises.
Golden Sachs was the largest contributor to the Obama campaign. B.P. was the second largest contributor. Golden Sachs was holding 250 million dollars worth of B.P. stock. Just before this all happened they dumped it all. Sold it all off. Up until a year ago, the chairman of Golden Sachs International was also the Chairman of B.P. oil. This administration was very upset about climate gate. That's when all the truth came out about man made global warming being a set up. All false information. If you recall, last night in Obamas speech, towards the end, he talked about Cap and Trade. Which is really cap and tax. I'll leave it at that. So, you tell me what you think. This is all verifiable.BP Was Founding Member of ‘Cap-and-Trade’ Lobby .
